As the Girl Scouts of America mark their 100th anniversary Monday, state legislators celebrated the organization by passing a resolution noting "the Girl Scouts’ century-long commitment to building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place," according to Cal Watchdog.
Among the legislators that reflected on their experiences and thoughts of the Girl Scouts, Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge), who represents San Gabriel Valley cities including La Cañada, Altadena, Arcadia, South Pasadena and parts of San Marino, urged his fellow lawmakers to "do your best" to practice the tenants of the Girl Scout Law, said Cal Watchdog.
Portantino then read the following Girl Scout law below. Read the law and share in the comments section if you think lawmakers should obey it. How well do you think lawmakers are currently obeying Girl Scout law?
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
