hi guys... once again i am coming to you for comforting, funny, odd thoghts on a problem...
im a boy scout, and it has come to the point where i am thinking about an eaglescout project (the last step before you achceive the highest rank in scouting, i would like to re-furbish a very rundown park that is very much in need of attention.
the equipment is rusty and broken, there is broken glass everywhere, i have suspisions of drug dealing at the park during the night, the many trees are starting to fall and need excavating badly, and the entire parks lawn needs to be mowed badly, i would also like to refurbish some of the equipment and add a new piece,,,
my parents and my scoutmaster somehow have a problem with this, they say that it is a liability, that i need a permit for it, and that its too much money,
my mom actually mentioned that i was tring to do a project and not "re-create disneyland"
so basically they are telling me not to get set on this project, but i really do want to do this, i have gone to this park since i was very little and have seen its steady decline, this park needs help, and the community has forgotten all about this park.
instead... my parents want me and my troop to take part in a bread for life project, i just dont feel right doing it because it would be just a part of the project, and not the whole project, i dont want this done for me, and that has been happening a lot with my rank and merit badges because of my physical limitations.
i want this to be my project i have a troop of 20+ kids that can help me with it...
do you guys think this is a good idea at all?
