Inclusion of ALL
On January 21st we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his dream that "his four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
One of the reasons I am so committed to the Girl Scout Movement is that we have always been strong advocates of inclusion of all people, as evidenced in our Girl Scout Law which says "to respect myself and others" - not "others like me" - but all others. MORE
