Thoughtful Thursday

Gettysburg Battlefield 4/21/09
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
Helen Keller

The end of a 10 mile Hike, the beginning of wonderment as we ponder on how the many soldiers felt so many years ago on hot July Days as they fought for freedom and the American spirit. What Character development happened on this 4 day scout trip with adverse weather conditions and lots of hiking every day? It is truly adversity that builds strength. May we rest knowing we are building stronger boys.
