Happy Birthday, Girl Scouts!

Girl Scout RibbonOn March 12, 2012, Juliette Low started Girl Scouting in the United States.

In 100 years, this organization has impacted millions of girls and adults in our country. It has stood to protect each girl . . . not only physically but morally. You may not agree with the idea of accepting everyone and not imposing religious or cultural norms. You might not agree how national directs the program. Girl Scouting gives girls the courage, confidence and character to take control of their own lives and future.

If you see anyone wearing the ribbon, uniform or identifying themselves as a Girl Scout / alumnae today, please think of the girls working to make our world a better place.
