Nations, states, communities, and even families have laws ... rules by which people must live in order to have harmony. Laws are based on your rights and the rights of others. If a law is broken, our freedom can be taken away. Every individual has laws, too--his personal moral standards--the laws by which he lives. If those laws are broken, we are unhappy and disappointed in ourselves. You have promised to obey the Law of the Pack. By doing so, you'll have a much happier life and be respected by your fellow Cub Scouts, and be a citizen of whom your community and nation can be proud.
