World Thinking Day - 2011

Our way is clear as we march on
And see! Our flag on high
Is never furled throughout the world
For hope shall never die!
We must unite for what is right
In friendship true and strong
Until the earth
In its rebirth
Shall sing our song! Shall sing our song!

World Thinking Day.  What does it mean to us as Girl Scouts?  Our voices are a beautiful part of over 10 million girls’ voices around the world – all of us sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, as members of WAGGGS, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. 
We are so lucky here in the United States.  We know that we can make our voices heard.  Our girls, through the Girl Scout Leadership experience Discover themselves and the world around them, Connect with others in the community, and Take Action to make the world a better place.
We watch the news and we see countries where people are discovering their voices and their voices can bring about peaceful change.  WAGGGS helps girls and young women discover their voices.
So today, on World Thinking Day, let our voices speak out clear and strong and support our sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world!
