Robert Kopa-something-or-other from my Troop had his Eagle Court of Honor yesterday and the normal collection of delegates from state and local government were present, one being the attachÃ© to Dennis Oâ€™Brien, the PA Speaker of the House. He talked about how he didnâ€™t know what to say and used the following amazing quote to explain what Eagle meant to him.
â€œTwo hundred years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt said the following â€˜Do not foul, do not flinchâ€™, and this Eagle hasnâ€™t.â€
Theodore Roosevelt running two hundred years ago, wow. Considering he was president from 1901 to 1908 that would mean he had a 93 year campaign, and I thought Reagan had a long campaign time.
