Webelos Closings

The other day in Colorado a great tree fell. It was nearly 800 years old. It was a mere sapling when Columbus lived. It had been stuck by lightning 14 times. It had braved the storms of five centuries. It had defied earthquakes and hurricanes. It had laughed in scorn at the winter's blizzards.
But in the end, tiny beetles killed it. They bore under the bark, dug into its heart and finally, one day when the mighty king tree could stand no more, down it came.
We have a lesson to learn from this. It is the little things that make or break us in our homes, and our lives.
