Sure you were disturbed when your friend told you this. It is too bad that
anyone should have to put up with those situations.
I too was in DC last week on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. Did I have any
problems with the hundreds of Scouts I saw.............no. My husband and I
have four chidren, a daughter age 12 and three boys ages 10 (a Webelos Scout),
8 ( a Bear), and 5. After I read your post I questioned my 12 & 10 year olds
about how they viewed the Scouts being there. They said the Scouts had no
effect on their vacation. My Scout sons actually enjoyed seeing so many
Scouts in uniform.
I'm sorry your friends had a negative experience because what a truly
wonderful program Scouting is.
