Standing Together

A man told his five children to go into the forest and each collect two sticks.  When they returned with the sticks, he gave each child one stick and asked him or her to break it.  Each child broke their stick easily.  Then the father bundled the remaining five sticks together and asked each child in turn to break the bundle of sticks.  No child could break the bundle!  He told his children, “each of you, like these sticks, is stronger when you stand together.”

We as conservationists--Democrat, Republican, independent; from the private, public or nonprofit sector-- are also stronger when together, and the Outdoors brings us together.  We must stand together and fight on conservation issues. It does not matter how you fish? What you fish with by what method? But we fish and stand together.
