Lian Ghraieb, 17 years old.
Orthodox Scouts of Kfar Yasif.
Some of the vulnerable values we learn at the scouts are
volunteering in every opportunity I get, being satisfied with what I have, the
ability of taking responsibilities, accepting others as they are and most essentially to become the best type of person who can help in changing our society, a leader.
Scout is not only a place where we meet up to gain all of the benefits above, it also let us become aware of what is happening in our ruthless world. For instance, we talk about the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict .
Personally, I was not that aware of what was happening around me, but after discussing the conflict several times I became more so. Scouts' leaders were starting conversations with us - scouts' team - about what we should do in certain situations like talking to someone whose opinion is different from ours or how to live peacefully with Jewish people and respect them, even though we donʼt have the same perspectives.
In my point of view, it is a privilege for me to be inscouts where I can say whatʼs on my mind, and just feel free to be myself without being afraid from them not accepting me.
