Echo Opening

Author:  GSLC

Recently I heard a story of a family on vacation. They were traveling by car on a grand tour
across the country. At one point, they stopped at a scenic overlook, which stood at the edge of a
steep-walled canyon. Some people at the overlook were having
fun, yelling into the canyon and listening for the many echoes
coming back.
“The youngest member of the family had never encountered an
echo like that before, where more than one reply came back. He
kept shouting all different kinds of words to the canyon and
laughing at the response. Finally, he turned to his father and
exclaimed. “Whatever I put in, comes out even more!”
Scouting is like that. You will get back out of it, what you put in. Sometimes it will come back
to you many times over. We are all on a wonderful adventure together in Scouting.
