The proper thing is to cancel the Jamboree after a memorial service is held.

Absolutely not xzins. This is not the first time scouts or leaders have died at the Jamboree. The units involved may (and probably should) pack up and go home.

But you're talking more than 40,000 scouts and leaders that come literally from around the world. And putting this one on has been no small feat.

I was an exhibitor at the 2001 Jamboree. My organization opted not to this year for various reasons. One of which was security concerns. The scouts and military have been working for years. Literally since 9/11 to make that place secure.

This is tragic. But it's no cause to give up on such a massive undertaking.
