Why do I do this?
The last few days have been a nightmare for me and those around me in Scouting. Things have come totally unhinged and I wish I could have seen some things coming that I could have prevented but I cannot turn back time. But no matter what happens I still support and care for those around me.
Through all of the things that have happened I have found myself scratching my head and wondering why in the world do I put myself through this kind of torture for something that is not mine and I am just involved in as a volunteer. I thought that it would just be easier to put the uniform in the closet and just leave it all behind. But then I remembered why I do what I do. I remembered that I participate in Scouting because of the kids involved in the program.
I volunteer in Scouting for my kids but I am also here for the other kids in the units in which I am involved. I do this to help them grow to be better people and better citizens. I do it the see the smiles on their faces. I do it because I am not going to depend on someone else to do. I do it because it makes a difference!
That is why I do this crazy thing called Scouting!
