Good Samaritan   Good Samaritan Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
A long time ago, a man was traveling down a road when he was ambushed by thieves. They robbed him and almost beat him to death.

As he lay there bleeding, several people passed by him without stopping to help. Then a man who believed in doing Good Turns happened along.

Using his own clothing, he made bandages and bound the victim's wounds.

Sound like a familiar story? the rescuer was the Good Samaritan. This is a famous story because one man had compassion for a suffering stranger. He had the three things required to help someone - skills, knowledge, and willingness.
He had first aid skills.
He diagnosed what needed fixing.
He cared enough to get involved.

In Scouting, you are learning to be a Good Samaritan, too - to care enough to help a person who needs it, to know what to do, and to know how to do it.

Part of the Scout Oath - "to help other people at all times." Don't just say it, Live it.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
