Dear Friends,
 
Greetings..
 
"93 Years Ago"
 
 
"The Word"
went out
"Far And Wide"
from
"The Nation's Capitol"
 
 
"Calling"
for
"The Boy Scouts"
to
"Arrange"
for..
 
 
"Liberty Fires"
to be
"Lighted"
in
"Every"
"City, Town, Village"
and
"At Every"
"Crossroad & Schoolhouse"
in
"The Country"
on
"The Evening"
of..
 
 
October 23, 1917
aka
Liberty Day
to..
 
 
"Symbolize"
"The Truth"
that
"America"
is..
 
 
"Keeping Alight"
"The Fires Of Liberty"
in
"The World!!"
 
Accordingly,
as
"The Grand Finale"
to
The 100th Anniversary
of
"Scouting In America"
"The Idea"
is to..
 
 
"Celebrate The Adventure-Continue The Journey"
and..
 
 
"Expand"
 
 
"A Shining Light Across America"
into
 
 
"A Light Around The World"
"Exactly"
"90 Days Later"
on
"Sunday"
October 31, 2010
The Anniversary
of..
 
 
"The Dedication of The Lincoln Highway"
to
"Bring About"
 
 
"Freedom's Holy Light"
(Scouting Magazine-July/August 1964)
(1964 Jamboree At Valley Forge)
with..
 
 
"An Exclamation Point"
on..
 
 
"A Global Scale"
in a way..
 
 
 
"The World"
has..
 
 
"Never Seen"
 
 
"Before!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Goal"
is to
"Answer"
"The Call"
of..
 
 
The Chief Scout Executive
at
"The Closing Ceremony"
to
"Be Big & Bold"
and
"Engage"
not only
"The 50 Million"
Boy Scouts of America
"Alumni"
but..
 
 
"The Millions & Millions"
of
"Global Alumni"
as..
 
 
"America's"
 
 
"Gift For Peace"
to
"Fulfill"
 
 
"The Ultimate Goal"
as ..
 
 
"Enumerated"
 
 
"Time And Time"
 
 
"Again"
by..
 
 
"Baden Powell"
at..
 
 
 
"The 1920 World Jamboree"
 
 
 
 
"The 1929 World Jamboree"
 
 
 
"The 1933 World Jamboree"
 
 
 
"The 1937 World Jamboree"
and
"Finally"
in..
 
 
"His Farewell Note"
for..
 
 
"The Scout Movement"
to
"Achieve"
"The Great Ideal"
and..
 
 
"Bring to Pass"
"God's Kingdom"
of
"Peace & Goodwill!!"
 
Accordingly,
"The Plan"
calls for
"The First Bonfire"
to be
"Lit"
on..
 
 
"The White House Lawn"
"Similar"
to..
 
 
"The 1917 Liberty Fire"
built..
 
 
"Under"
(Derby Hat On Bail)
 
 
"The Direction"
of..
 
 
Colonel Robert Harper
"Chairman"
of..
 
 
The Washington Lincoln Highway Committee
with..
 
 
"The Help"
of..
 
 
"The Boys Scouts"
that..
 
 
"Swept Across The Country"
after..
 
 
"He"
"Gave The Command"
for..
 
 
"The President's Daughter"
to..
 
 
"Kindle Anew"
Liberty's Flaming Beacon
and
"Bring About"
"A New Liberty Enlightening The World!"
 
Accordingly,
"The October 31st"
"Dedication"
of
The Lincoln Highway
is
"The Perfect Event"
to
"Bring About"
"A New Liberty"
since
Abraham Lincoln
not only
 
 
"Defined"
"The Word"
but
"He Is"
 
 
"A True Scout"
and..
 
 
"The Patron Saint"
of
"The Scout Movement"
to which..
 
 
"He"
should be..
 
 
"A Steady Inspiration"
to
"Every Boy"
"Who Wishes To Call Himself"
"A Scout!!"
 
That...
 
"In Addition"
to
"The Fact"
 
 
"The Boy Scouts"
 
 
"Adopted"
 
 
"The Lincoln Highway"
(First Transcontinental Highway In America From New York To San Francisco In 1913)
 
 
"For Life"
so that..
 
 
"The Memory of Lincoln"
will be
"Written"
 in..
 
 
"The Flag Of Peace"
he kept..
 
 
"Inviolate"
whose..
 
 
"Union He Secured"
and..
 
 
"Cemented For All Time!!"
 
Accordingly,
since
President Obama
is..
 
 
"The Lincoln Bicentennial President"
taking..
 
 
"The Oath Of Office"
on..
 

 
"The Lincoln Bible"
it seems
"Altogether Fitting"
that..
 
 
"He Should Host The Event"
and
"Invite"
"All"
 
 
"Living Nobel Peace Laureates"
 
 
(Including The New Winner & His Wife)
to
"Gather Together"
for
"The First Time"
"Ever"
"To Honor Lincoln"
and..
 
 
"Baden Powell"
as..
 
"A 17 Time Nobel Nominee"
http://lincoln-highway-museum.org/BP-Nobel/BP-Nobel-Index.html
which would..
 
 
"Fulfill His Obligation"
as..
 
 
"The Current Recipient"
and
"Make Right"
 
 
"The Missed Jamboree"
since...
 
 
"The Jamboree"
http://lincoln-highway-museum.org/Jambo/Jambo-Index.html
is..
 
 
"In Fact"
 
 
"A Presidential Creation!!"
http://lincoln-highway-museum.org/Jambo/Jambo-Index.html
 
Accordingly..
 
,
 
The 1937 Grand Convocation
provides..
 
 
 
 
 
"The Perfect Foundation"
to..
 
 
"Honor"
"The Spiritual Forces"
on
"Sunday"
"October 31st"
with..
 
 
"A World Scouting Review"
and
"Bonfire"
since..
 
 
"The 1937 Fire"
aka
 
 
"The Perpetual Fire"
is
"The Only Other"
"Boy Scout Fire"
lit on
"The White House Grounds"
which is of course..
 
 
"Home"
to..
 
 
"The Boy Scout Memorial"
which
"Holds"
 
 
"The Eternal Flame"
of..
 
 
"God's Holy Spirit!!!
 
Unfortunately,
"Have Not"
had
"Much Luck"
with
"The White House"
inspite of
"My Best Efforts"
which is
"Disappointing"
since
"October 31st"
was
"Also"
 
 
"Flag Day"
and..
 
 
"Bon Fire Night"
during...
 
 
"The Election of 1896"
where in
"Both"
 
 
"The Republicans & Democrats"
"Came Together"
for
 
 
"Old Glory"
and
 
 
"Liberty!!"
 
That being the case,
since it has taken
"14 Years"
to
"Put It All Together"
I'd be
"Remiss"
if
"I Didn't Share"
"The Opportunity"
and
"Issue"
 
 
 
"A Call For Action"
to..
 
 
"Fulfill"
Baden Powell's Vision
for
 
 
"Great Bonfires to Girdle Earth"
on..
 
 
 
"Day Of Peace"
(Photo Taken On Location of 1919 Atlanta Fire)
as
"The Finale"
to..
 
 
"The 100th Anniversary Celebration!!"
 
Accordingly,
"I'll Be There"
at..
 
 
"The Boy Scout Memorial"
"Sunday Evening"
October 31st
like I've been..
 
 
 
 
"The Last 3 Years"
for..
 
 
"Light Around The World"
to..
 
 
"Blow"
"The Kudo Horn"
 
 
"Bury The Hatchet"
and..
 
 
"Shoot"
 
 
"The Golden Arrow"
of
"Peace"
to
"The Four Winds"
so that..
 
 
"All Men" 
may know
"The Fatherhood of God"
and
"The Brotherhood of Man!!"
 
And so..
 
"Won't You Join Me"
Sunday Evening
where ever
"You May Be"
by..


"Lighting A Bonfire"
and or
"Candle"
forming
"A Light Around The World"
on
"Day Of Peace!!"
 
Accordingly,
"Please"
"Share This With Your Troop"
"Council"
"Region"
or
"Country"
(And Media)
and
"If You Have Any Questions"
"Feel Free"
to
"Call Or Email"
"Anytime!!"
 
Until then..
 
Warmest Regards,

because
"It Will Be"
 
 
"The Supreme Demonstration"
of
"Scout Preparedness!!"
