that our Girl Scout troop had some money. I have now twice been a Girl Scout leader where the troop was starting from scratch. While the girls did pay some dues, it is barely enough to cover our basic costs. There are just so many fun opportunities that we will have to miss. I could ask the girls to pay for these events, but I know most of their families are just scraping by. I can't bear to see someone not included. Then I see the news and the horrors of natural destruction and poverty. I realize how lucky we are. We are not scraping by. The truth is that I need to rise to the occasion and be more creative with the resources we do have. A pity party is just pathetic when there are people in real need.
