Lead by Example

Our Boy Scout troop’s first Scoutmaster, Ray Hoyle, taught me one of the most important lessons of my life.

I’ve written before that CBS Sunday Morning has been a favorite TV program for most of my life. A segment in today’s episode is yet another reason why. Enjoy:

A timeless idea, perfectly timed for our time.
