    Just shared this video with my friends! What an incredible and moving story. I love how honest he describes his experience as a Boy Scout and a leader. His understanding of the code makes sense and with volunteers/members like Todd, I have a feeling this ban will be lifted.

    Such a cool video. I love how he isn't just shunning the Boy Scouts from his life but really trying to help an organization that clearly was a positive part of his childhood. Hopefully the Boy Scouts will make the right decision!

      That's what I love about it too. It's a productive approach that tries to include everyone. Thanks!!
