The Keystone   The Keystone Minute   Scout Minute

When we learn about the mighty arch and its importance in construction, we usually focus on the keystone, that stone in the middle at the top of the arch. This keystone supports all of the other stones and lets the arch support large weights.
Sometimes we think of our patrol or troop leader as being that keystone; the one we all rely on. Have you ever thought, though, what would happen to the keystone if some of the other stones were removed?
By removing any single stone in the arch, the keystone would most certainly fall with all the others and the whole structure collapse.
The same thing happens when scouts leave the leader to shoulder the burden alone or when a scout does not support the patrol or troop. Rembember, the keystone is just one of many that make the arch stand strong!
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
