After the Boy Scouts of American unveiled their momentous decision yesterday to allow openly gay boys in their group- a lot of people were getting a little choked up.

One person who definitely was feeling some love was an openly gay scout from Maryland named Pascal Tessier.

It's been a long road for this top notch boy scout, but he can finally be gay and proud!

Here's what he said:

"I was thinking that today could be my last day as a Boy Scout. Obviously, for gay Scouts like me, this vote is life-changing."

Yet Pascal also feels uneasy about the change in the rules of the game.

16-years-old Pascal is on track to receive the Eagle Scout award which is the highest honor one can receive in the Boy Scouts.

But the thought of holding the highest honor until he's 18, and then not being allowed to be involved with the Boy Scouts in any way in a couple years - is not weighing lightly on his mind.

Here's what he said:

"That one couple hours (between 17 and 18) will make me not a good person."

Wow, that's tough.

Obviously Pascal will still be a good person, an inspiring person, but hopefully this is just the beginning of the changes to this highly controversial organization.

The Boy Scouts of America have made the first step, but we think they need to go all the way and make it where both scouts and leaders can be open about their sexual orientation!

Lets make this happen!!!
