graduated ONE WEBELOS Scout to Boy Scouting, councils see the net loss
of one unit, and loose a not-so-silent scream of despair.
Just a thought, but when numbers become, are, remain
more important than the quality, and sadly, that can
be true in Scouting, work, hours with loved ones, etc., etc., doesn't
everyone involved in the process tend to lose.
Maybe I'm dead wrong, but to me it's a shame more people don't
recognize that large amonts of low quality
not only detracts from the moment, the product, etc., it also builds
new obstacles toward ever improving the quality and ultimately a
larger quantity of quality.
Took me a too long time to get that through my own head. if it don't
make sense to anyone else, I apologize. My brain waves are odd.
