“On My Honor, I will try, to serve God and my country, to help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout Law”.
What a valuable and life long lesson that simple pledge imprinted on my then, 7-year-old heart. The fact that I memorized that even till today (not kidding!) makes it even more meaningful. It applied to me then (circa year 1996), when I was a Brownie and then a Junior. But it applies even more today. The meaning behind this pledge represents humanity and respect. The Girl Scouts not only instills this in the young ladies of our community but nationally as well. Now more than ever, there is no greater pledge for our girls.
