Kudos to Appleton Boy Scouts
« on: June 28, 2022, 06:46:45 PM »
Major 7 car train derailment Monday in northern Missouri. Amtrak's Southwest Chief travelling from LA to Chicago struck a large truck and went over. At least 3 died and many injured.

The sidebar was that 2 Troops of Boy Scouts from Appleton were on the train, returning from an outing in Kansas. They immediately sprung into action administering first aid and carrying people off the train to safety. Pretty impressive for 14-15 year old kids who themselves must have been scared chitless. Appleton should be proud of these kids.

I hope they get more badges for that.     

Good for them.    They should be proud of what they did and their parents should be proud of them.   

It is my experience that teenagers are more adaptable than many adults.   And more willing to pitch in.    Give them a task.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Remarkable young men
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?
