What Is An Eagle?

I was reflecting on my life one day, I found myself thinking that I really have not accomplished very much.  Oh sure, I work, go on vacations, attend necessary family functions, take care of my family and anything else that life might demand of me.  I have a good life, but something was missing.

Then, I was asked to become an Eagle.  At the time, I did not fully understand what it meant to be an eagle My original thought was that I would have an opportunity to make new friends.

I think about the people I met when I first became an Eagle.  Those people actually welcomed me with open arms.  They really didn’t know me; however, they made me feel at home and accepted me as part of their Eagle family.  I began to do volunteer work with them by my side to help me along the way.  i never thought it would affect my life the way it has.

The motto of the Eagles if “PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE“.  That means we always try to help others in need – Eagle member or not.  Various functions throughout the year help us fulfill this motto.

Belonging to and being an Eagle are two different things.  Anyone can belong to something; however, to be an Eagle you need to be involved.  I know that I am an Eagle now, and try to do as much as I can to help.  I hope that I have made a difference in someone’s life by becoming and Eagle.  I know it has made a change in mine.
