Most of us have an idea of what loyalty is, although it can be misguided. Loyalty isn’t blindly following someone and doing or saying whatever is asked. It is having their back. To do that, you must stick by them and support them, even when they are wrong. That means letting them know when they have gone astray and helping them to steer a true course. A Scout is loyal… to their family, to their friends, their school, their team, their community, their town or city… A scout is loyal to their state, their country… A scout is loyal to our planet. Most of all, a Scout must be loyal to himself or herself.
