I think that in life, we can aim for perfection as an ideal. That
doesn't mean that we can actually go out and do what we aim for.
It doesn't matter how hard we try, either. There's always some little
thing that will prevent perfection, and with the amount of Scout leaders
out there, some will fall between the cracks.
It's not a question of setting lower goals, it's that of accepting
the possible, in this case.
