Thank you for visiting your national park,
Particularly in times when things look stark.
Fires, pandemics, presidents, droughts; all will fade.
Do you know what won’t? The memories we’ve made.
Imagine a campfire. Picture yourself there.
Feel the heat. Smell the smoke. Watch the embers flare.
Let go of thoughts that detain you. Consume grief.
Hold tight to what sustains you. Conserve relief.
~ Camp Host Chad
