Lake Miller says his work with justice and equality issues largely comes from how he was raised, and the work his mother has done in her life.

Lake will likely do well with either decision—even now the 18-year-old Eagle Scout is the youngest member of the national Scouts for Equality Leadership Council and he's just begun the firstLGBT-friendlyBoy Scout unit at Temple Israel in Dayton.

For more information on Lake's efforts and the Boy Scout unit at Temple Israel, you can contact him at lakesphotos@sbcglobal.net
