One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better, because I was important in the life of a child.

    It is good to see this attributed to the correct name . Dr. Wicraft was a Scout Leader in the 1950's . Often, it is listed as that prolific writer "Anonymous". The above quote, while very inspirational in itself, is incorrect. It has been "corrected" to be made "gender neutral". The original essay is short and even more inspirational. It can be found here, and is worth the effort to read the original , in context and unedited : http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2014/12/11/forest-witcraft-quote-first-appeared-scouting-magazine/
