Our Girl Scout troop is up to 13 members now. There are two troops with girls from Sarah’s school. The other troop has 5 members and is not taking any new girls because “the girls are all friends who have been together for several years”. I told the other troop’s leader that we have a homeless girl in our troop now because I wanted to discuss the logistics of helping discreetly. I didn’t get any advice. Instead I got a stunned “Homeless?!? At OUR school? How can that happen?” I’m guessing the other leader has never noticed the government housing that is practically across the street from Bearden Middle School.
