Common Denominator

A president, at least forty astronauts, Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, Academy Award winners and my son. What is their common denominator you may ask, Eagle Scout. One week ago today, my son successfully sat for his Eagle Scout Board of review. It was the culmination of a long journey that involved him earning thirty-one merit badges, serving as the Senior Patrol Leader for his troop for two terms, working with Cub Scouts as a den chief to pass along the skills that he’s learned, making great friends and having lots of fun. I am very proud of my son. I’m also pleased that the achievement of his Eagle Scout rank will show the world what those of us who know him already know, he’s an exemplary young man.
