It happened in Western Iowa. We were in NW Iowa on vacation. We spent a lot of time in the storm shelter that night. But all was well where we were. It breaks my heart. Those boys are the same age as my son. It does scare the heck out of me to send my daughter to GS camp this summer. I know I'll send her, but it's scary no matter what. Those parents thought their children would be fine too. I guess they had no warning and they were a mile away from storm shelters. They spent 3 1/2 hours in the shelters and practiced the first aid that they had learned as scouts. At least they had scout knowledge and took care of each other! Be prepared!

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

I live in central IL and my girlfriends boys were at scout camp in Indiana all this week. It is hard enough to send your kids to camp without something like that happening while you they are gone. Nothing makes you want to hold on to your own kids a little tighter than hearing about other parents who have lost theirs. Those Boy Scouts made me proud to be associated with scouts of any kind. They did good!

I heard about this yesterday. It is very sad, but at the same time speaks volumes for the boy scouts as only 4 died, it could have been so much worse!

We're due for more storms today last I heard. (In Michigan)

Yes, I have heard about it and I really feel sad about it. My son is in the Boy Scouts, but in Southern California. I know those boys did every thing to help each other. I always say to people that if my son is going to camp he will be at the safest place possible. But things come up that can't be controlled. I feel for the families.

Wow. I haven't heard about that yet. I do hope everybody is ok. I am in central IL. We have had our fair share of storms this year, but so far nothing awful enough to hurt anybody or do any serious damage.

Hey everyone, I am not sure where everyone is from but just heard on the news about the Boy Scout camp that was flattened by the tornado and am checking to see if anyone was affected?

We don't have the power to make rainbows or waterfalls, sunsets or roses but we do carry within us the power to make the world a better place.
