My daughter Elizabeth is in Troop 64257 in Aurora. Elizabeth has a twin brother, Joel, who has special needs. There’s a girl in her troop, Emily, who truly epitomizes what it means to be a Girl Scout. Emily always treats Joel with such dignity and respect. When you read the Girl Scout Law, you know that she TRULY takes it to heart and is leading by example. Today, after I picked up Joel from school, we were waiting for his sister to come out and he lit up when he saw Emily. Emily checked to make sure it was safe to cross the street, walked over to the car, and gave Joel a big hug, MADE HIS DAY! With so many kids being bullied, Emily is a strong leader and really shows how to treat others!
