The glory of full Autumn is past but a few trees are still holding to their bright leaves -- and they are spectacular as they flare up amidst the gray trunks and dark bare branches of the woods.
How far that little candle throws its beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
It's a naughty world, all right. Maybe we all, not just Boy Scouts, should try to do a good deed every day.
Call a Congressman, volunteer, smile at a stranger, help someone somehow, support a charity, pick up a piece of litter,
put the shopping buggy back thoughtfully, be patient with someone who makes you impatient, make something for someone . . . there are so many good deeds waiting to be done . . . waiting to make our world shine bright.
