A Show of Hands: The Girl Scout Law

I was a Brownie and Girl Scout in the 1960s and 70s.  I have fond memories of the troop meetings, the crafts, earning badges, and going camping.  While I could remember the Girl Scout finger sign, I couldn’t recall the Girl Scout Law.  After a search on Google, I found it had been revised from my days in scouting, but the basic idea remains the same:

I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

If everyone lived by these simple, sound, strong words, the world would be a much happier place.
