1919 NATIONAL BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA RESOLUTION on THEODORE ROOSEVELT - drafted by Hermann Hagedorn, TR's friend, biographer and 1st RMA/TRA Director:
He was found faithful over a few things and was made ruler over many. He was frail; he made himself a lion of courage. He was a dreamer; he became one of the great doers of all time. Men put their trust in him; women found a champion in him; kings stood in awe of him, but children made him their playmate. He broke a nation's slumber with his cry, and it rose up. Souls became swords through him; swords became servants of God. He was loyal to his country, and he exacted loyalty; he loved many lands, but he loved his own land best. He was terrible on battle, but tender to the weak; joyous and tireless, being free from self-pity; clean with a cleanness that cleansed the air like a gale. His courtesy knew no wealth or class;his friendship, no creed or color or race. His courage stood every onslaught of savage beast and ruthless man, of loneliness, of victory, of defeat. His mind was eager, his heart was true, his body and spirit defiant of obstacles, ready to meet what might come. He fought injustice and tyranny; bore sorrow gallantly; loved all nature, bleak places, and hardy companions, hazardous adventurer and zest of battle. Wherever he went, he carried his own pack; and in the uttermost parts of the earth he kept his conscience for his guide
