A Scout is Trustworthy

Several years ago I started a project to depict the points of the Scout Law in Lego, but only got a third of the way through.  I always meant to finish, though, and this feels like a good time to get back into it.

As far as building goes, I'm going to pick up where I left off instead of starting over.  But the first four installments of this blog series will be the original vignettes from my first attempt at the project.  So, without further ado. . . .

If you've ever lost a ten-dollar bill, you feel pretty bad.  If you lose more money, you feel even worse, but that's nothing compared to how you feel when you're sick or injured.  It's especially bad if you find out that your sickness or injury is going to take a long time before you're healed.  But there's one thing even worse than losing money or getting sick, and that is losing your integrity.  It has been said that when wealth is lost, nothing is lost.  When health is lost, something is lost.  When character is lost, all is lost.

--Ron Wendel, The Scoutmaster Minute, p. 10
