Girl Scouts' 100th Birthday
By Monica Hesse, Published: March 4 - Washington Post
However well-placed you may be now, times may come when you will have to know how to milk, cook, cut wood, wash clothes, act as a nurse, or even defend your own life. Many things which are now done for you will have to be done without any assistance from others. All these things you can learn as a Girl Scout.
