For me, politics isn't everything in life. However, I do consider it important, and I support MY President, Donald Trump. And I'm firm on my beliefs in the matter. Tonight, I found out that my old Scoutmaster, Dennis, is VERY anti-Trump. I really looked up to him when I was a young man; he was like a father figure to me in many respects. I'm slightly put-out, and not a bit surprised too. He is a Vietnam veteran (Marines), and he always struck me as a God-fearing Christian man, and that's what I believed. In many ways, he still appears to be a Conservative, but man....he REALLY doesn't like Trump. I grew up and left the Troop, and later came back for a half-hearted attempt at being an Assistant Scoutmaster, but I wasn't neither a good scoutmaster, nor a good influence on the young men in my troop. Dennis seemed to grow distant of me, and I never understood why. Perhaps he went from treating me like a scout, to treating me like a colleague? I didn't stick around....I didn't get much satisfaction in the role in what I saw as a changing troop and changing scouting organization in general. But more than that, I had a lot of problems in my life at the time, and I was working constantly, and was in fact on the way to working myself into a suicide attempt in 2007. Thankfully, things got better, but I lost touch with him until recently. I just connected with Dennis last month for the first time in years, but I didn't really give much of his Facebook page a look at the time. His son, a good friend of mine, hasn't taken the time to say a word to me other than give me the link to another friend of mine on Facebook. That's concerning to me as well...I spoke on stage at his court of honor when he received his Eagle, and he was like a little brother to me. Perhaps I was more toxic than I realized? Maybe I didn't try hard enough? Anyways.....have any of you connected with friends or mentors after years apart only to find out that they aren't quite the people that you thought they were? I dunno.....maybe it's just Facebook that brings out the worst in people.
