Title Camping with Mom and Dad
Description "It was getting late. Dad called. 'Come on, boys, let's build that big bonfire Mom has good things to eat. "We all carried lots of wood, had a good bonfire, roasted marshmallows, sang songs, then it was time for bed. Tomorrow we wanted to do and see everything, and we just about did. "Bedtime and darkness. All was quiet. Then Paul called out, 'Dad will bears hurt you in the night?' "'Sure, they will tear you to pieces.' "All quiet Another voice, Jerry's. 'Dad, how about lions, do they roam around at night?' "'They do! Go to sleep.' "Silence... deep silence! The black darkness crowding in. "Suddenly, everyone was awake, screaming, hurriedly dressing, just anything to grab The forest was on fire, flames about to touch the sky. or so it seemed. We all carried lots of dirt-how I do remember. We stamped out the flaming coals and poured water on them "Breathing time again, and father's voice, 'Who started this fire? It could have been a big, big forest fire.' "I spoke up. 'I did, Dad. I'm sorry, but I was so scared We all were. You said a fire would keep the animals away, so I got up in the night and piled on wood No one heard me. Dad, which would you choose to lose, all your family, or the forest?" "The ANSWER? You guess. All's well that ends well." 21
