My heart goes out to this scout troop and their families. Scout leaders and parents work so hard on the delicate balance between ensuring safety and promoting scouters' development and confidence through challenging outdoor activities. When natural forces for which we have no control bring tragedy of this scale, it is very hard to understand. Please keep these families and all scouters in your thoughts.

Thanks to the Bush administration and the Republicans polluters we have Global Warming and these events are increasing. Years of neglect of caring for our natural environment caused this. The family's and friends of those boy scouts have Bush and the Republicans to thank for their suffering. I clearly remember Al Gore saying right after he "lost" the election back in 2000 that electing Bush "would have grave consequences on the environment" Why do Americans constantly get it wrong and elect morons like Bush? Friends don't let friends vote Republican..

while I agree that Bush is a bad person and global warming needs to be stopped, this is not the place to be ranting about it. I consider myself a democrat and a liberal as well as a Boy Scout. We should keep polotics out of this and memorialize thse who died as well as honor those who put themselves in harms way to help others.

These boys were SCOUTS, not elite Scouts but SCOUTS. One could expect any group of Scouts to react the same way in time of need. That is what it is all about people. BE PREPARED.
