Watch and share this one minute video. It could make all the difference.
Knowledge really can save lives. In Scouting, we instill age-appropriate lessons to prepare children for whatever may come in their future. This video more poignantly conveys that value of Scouting than anything I have ever seen: tragedy strikes, and a Scout (or former Scout) trained in how to conduct himself (or herself) in such an emergency performs a remarkable feat. If it doesn't pull at the heartstrings every parent, I don't know what will. Please share it (and this blog) with friends who are not yet in Scouting.
The video, produced by the Scouts of South Africa dramatically portrays the kind of scene that plays out hundreds of times a year around the world.
