Dinosaurs In The Garden

The dinosaurs were quite brave. They strutted over the light dusting of snow on the sidewalk and approached the food. They cast darting glances from side to side, sometimes observing the black, four-legged mammals that lay on the grass and other times eyeing suspiciously the two-legged mammal that stood, partially concealed, behind a shadowy screen. With quick motion, the dinosaurs captured morsels of dog food in their beaks and flew away.

The particular dinosaurs I speak of are commonly referred to as starlings. Their more impressive cousins, such as Apatosaurus and Tyrannosaurus-Rex died out 65 million years ago in a cataclysm that was so pervasive and nearly complete that dinosaurs have become a metaphor for failure.

Actually, they were highly successful group that persisted for 225 million years, scouting today's birds.

Tonight, as we think about the future of Scouting, let's take the time to reflect on our own past, as we explore the exciting world of Dinosaurs. Please rise for the Pledge of Allegiance.
