The Huffington Post’s newest contributing blogger is Camp Fire National Headquarters President & CEO Cathy Tisdale. In her first post, she reacts to our political climate with words that reflect on the Camp Fire experience:

Some convention speakers spoke to the future our children and grandchildren will inherit. Good for them. It’s an important topic. However, before their speech writers sat down to write the words spoken from the podium, I wish they could have spent a day at one of our Camp Fire programs. They would have learned so much about what our young people really need, discussed how public policy affects their future, and experienced the spark in a child’s eye when exposed to programs designed to inspire and motivate.”
