Flying Up

I have fond memories of Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts, and I guess I've had them freshly brought to mind by the Boy Scouts' recent reaffirmation of their long-standing ban on gay scouts. The Girl Scouts have no such ban.

My Flying Up ceremony from Brownies to Juniors took place at Audubon Park. We Flew Up over a real bridge -the one in the photo above- which I thought was cool at the time and still do. I was so impressed by it that when I was a scout leader, I found a park that had a little bridge to do my troop's ceremony.

    That is _so_ cool! I think the Flying Up may be one of the neatest rights of passage among all organizations. Nifty photo of the bridge, too.
