"Challenges" By David Cluff

A few weeks ago I was at a Boy Scout (BSA) Council to turn in all my eagle papers to get my eagle award. (To see my eagle project visit: http://www.davidseagleproject.blogspot.com/) My father and I were talking to a man at the council and asked he me a question: “What is the hardest thing, being hearing impaired, in scouting?” I thought about it and the first thing that came to my mind was campouts. It was a challenge each month as I prepared to camp with my scout troop. I knew I would be fine but I always had thoughts about “what if.” What if my implant broke or what if I can’t charge my implants? By following the scout motto, “Be Prepared,” I knew just what to do.
