On December 10, 2013, Jack Scott received his Unity of Mankind Religious Award for completing a 3 month study of unity and the individual, unity and the family, and unity and humanity. Please click below for more information and photos of the event. 

The award to this outstanding Tiger Scout was offered by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of the US. His father, Vann Scott, Jr. is a troop leader. Congratulations, Jack!

"...According to the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh the family, being a human unit, must be educated according to the rules of sanctity. All the virtues must be taught the family. The integrity of the family bond must be constantly considered, and the rights of the individual members must not be transgressed. The rights of the son, the father, the mother--none of them must be transgressed, none of them must be arbitrary. Just as the son has certain obligations to his father, the father, likewise, has certain obligations to his son. The mother, the sister and other members of the household have certain prerogatives. All these rights and prerogatives must be conserved, yet the unity of the family must be sustained. The injury of one shall be considered the injury of all; the comfort of each, the comfort of all; the honor of one, the honor of all."
