Save it for Us

Author:  GSLC

The next time you’re outside, pause a moment to look at the old trees. They have sheltered
countless generations of wildlife and have withstood years of extreme weather and the abuses of
man. They’ve seen children playing at their roots and climbing in their branches. They’ve heard
the conversations of war and peace of the men gathered in their generous shade.
Listen to the brook as it whispers of its secret travels nurturing the earth along the way. Look
into it and see the insects, amphibians, and fish that call it home. Wade into its shallows and feel
its refreshing coolness.
Nature persistently calls us to leave the sidewalks and traffic lights and noise and hustle and
bustle of the city. The earth is calling us back to enjoy its simplicity and beauty.
Good night Scouts. Go in peace and remember to “Do Your Best” to “Save It for Us” so that
you, and your children, and your children’s children can enjoy earth’s beautiful and wondrous
