Tall Trees   Tall Trees Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
A tree by itself in a field does not grow especially tall. It has all the light it needs. It will often grow wide, lazily spreading its branches out to soak in the sunlight that pours in all around it.

A tree in a forest, surrounded by other trees, must reach for the light. It constantly grows to become the tallest tree, to get the most light.

When it does become the tallest, it pauses and rests; soaking in the sun.

But while it rests, the trees around it take their turns, forcing themselves to grow towards the source of nourishment and warmth.

In this way, great forests grow and many of the trees reach far into the sky.
Scouts are much the same way.

Scouts who are alone, who stay by themselves and don't participate, tend not to grow to great heights.

Its funny, but when you see a Scout becoming an Eagle, you will often see others right behind him. Together, they have supported each other, and competed with each other to become the best and strongest they can.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
