The Light Of Day Has Left Us
Posted On: 2021-01-30
The light of day has left us. Our campfire burns low. A good day of Scouting done, we can sit back and consider our rewards. The whole of nature surrounds us: towering trees, running water, green grass, hills and valleys, the animals of the fields and forest, the stars, and especially good friends. Our fire still warms us against the chill night air. The fire focuses our attention, embers glowing, giving a soft light to silhouettes moving slowly around the camp. We treasure these friendly hours of teamwork, as we become a close-knit Scouting family. While the fire becomes only ashes, only a memory, our friendship, and our Scouting traditions go on forever.
