One of the theme’s of BO’s campaign for president that was most enthralling for me was the potential he holds to really bind our country together for the good of the whole.  Whether it be the massive investment into roads, bridges, rail, and other infrastructure, or the call for a spirit of volunteerism and service, Obama promises to usher in an era of cooperation that all persons of faith should welcome.

One of the first opportunities for us to link arms with our new president is his challenge to sign the Declaration of Service.  Initiated by ServiceNation,

This campaign now focuses onbuilding a national grassroots movement aimed at inspiring widespreadpublic support for increasing voluntary community and national serviceopportunities, solving problems with proven service strategies, andelevating service as a core ideal of civic engagement. ServiceNationencourages all Americans to step forward and take the lead in bridgingour divides, strengthening our communities, and building a more vibrantdemocracy.

I’ve taken the challenge and signed the declaration.  Over the coming year, I pledge to volunteer 50 hours or more, primarily as
Cub Scout den leader with the Boy Scouts of America.
