You are like the old man who, having successfully crossed the ravine himself,
paused to build a bridge for those who might follow him. You have built an
electronic bridge which we all walk on a daily basis to seek knowledge, advice,
solice, or simply companionship. No one can know the countless hours you must
spend performing the tedious administrative tasks associated with the upkeep of
this list. Try to look beyond those tasks and see that through your work here
you touch the lives of thousands of youth in packs and troops around the world.
When I present material from the list to 100+ scouters at roundtable, how many
lives do you touch?
When material from the list is included in a Pow-Wow book, how many lives do
When advice from the list helps to solve the problems of a pack or troop and
allows it to continue to serve youth, how many lives do you touch?
When advice from the list helps to turn a misguided youth from a path of
destruction to one aligned with the aims of scouting, how many lives do you
When a frustrated scouter at the end of his/her rope finds advice and comfort
and continues on in scouting, how many lives do you touch?
The sad thing is that the rest of us get to see the tangible results of this
list in the eyes and hearts of the youth we serve, while you cannot see the end
results of your work. As you read these letters of appreciation, try to use our
eyes and see the faces of the young men who have a better scouting program due
to your efforts. These few bytes that we send cannot begin to express the
respect and gratitude we on the list have for you. Thank you, Jon. You have
made a difference. No one can ask for more in life.
