--- The Jaycee Creed ---
"We believe:
  That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
  That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
  That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
  That government should be of laws rather than of men;
  That earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
  And that service to humanity is the best work of life."
