I'm so very astonished at how much feedback I receive from a blog post I made a few months ago about a skit performed at my son's Cub Scout meeting. Other than congratulations received for publishing successes, that post has to be my most popular. I get an email each time someone comments on it. Once I received an email from someone who didn't want to post a comment on my blog, but took the time to find my email address and send a nasty note.
I was simply recalling what I'd witnessed at a Cub Scout meeting, and how it made me feel. I wasn't asking anyone to agree or disagree with me. But boy, I riled some folk!
I enjoy participating with my son in Cub Scouts. I have no intention of trying to change the organization. My son is a scout, and will remain as long as he's interested. I will, however, silently cringe to myself each and every time they stick a feather someplace and call themselves Indians. Just me, sorry.
