Two experiences this past weekend left me thinking about a very important piece of wisdom: community is a privilege. My younger brother achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend his ceremony. As an outsider, it was inspiring to see the excitement of the other Scouts and hear the kind words spoken about my brother when he received his awards and medals. This group of young men truly embodies a community; their dedication to their cause and each other embody what it means to be a community. Watching the closing ceremonies of the Olympic Winter Games was another inspirational experience. These athletes earned the opportunity to enter a small community of elite athletes that are the best in their sport in the world.
The one thing that stuck out most about both the Boy Scouts of America and Olympic Winter Games are the relationships that are fostered between the members of these communities. They have shown passion, dedication and support to each other to help them to reach success. Achieving the Eagle Scout rank or competing in the Olympic Winter Games provides a different type of experience, it provides a community of peers connected by a common cause and passion. Formerly used as a famous advertising slogan by American Express, Membership has its privileges - this certainly holds true for Eagle Scouts and Olympic Winter Games competitors.
