I wanted to write a quick post to explain why I’ve missed a few days.
But when I try to write it, there’s so much I want to tell you. I want to offer you the full story. I want to preserve the truth and realness that I think are characteristic of The Naughty Corner.
The thing is, it’s actually just too hard and raw and current to write about at the moment. I need a few more days.
Suffice to say, some pretty heartbreaking shit has gone down.
All that is left to say is a Promise that I made. I made this Promise in front of a group of adults and kids that have become a part of my family. They’ve taken up space in my heart and my mind and my weekends and my weeks and so much more. And so, just as I said it then, I say it again right now.
And I still mean every word.
On my honour, I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to my God, and to Australia; to help other people and to live by the Cub Scout Law.
Cub Scouts are loyal and obedient. Cub Scouts do not give in to themselves.
