Boy Scout Returns Stolen Wallet

Kidmazing: Boy Scout Returns Wallet

Part of the Boy Scout oath is "to help other people at all times" and their slogan is "do a good turn daily."

According to the La Crosse Tribune, eleven–year–old Boy Scout J.R. Bouterse is certainly living up to the group's moral standards.

To see what the boy did,


After finding a wallet with $800 cash in it, the youngster told an adult. To reward him for his commendable actions, the Michigan State Police threw a pizza party for the boy and his entire troop. And, the owner of the wallet showed up to thank the lad in person.

It's good to know that kids like J.R. are out there to keep the good karma going.

In this day and age, do you think he is the norm or the exception?

Yayy good for him! It's hard to say if he's the norm or the exception since the media is constantly reporting the bad news, so alot of good stuff goes unreported. I can only say that I've raised my own children to act in the same manner this boy did.
