A couple of blocks away from my apartment building there was a massive tree whose root grew so big it broke apart the sidewalk. The broken section was like a pointed mountain, straight up and down. It was a serious hazard. Personally, I couldn't walk on that broken sidewalk at all. So I took the scenic route.

Instead of uprooting and destroying the tree, the city simply paved a smooth ramp over the root so the tree can now safely continue growing under the sidewalk.

There's always another way. No need for extremes. No need to scream any political agenda, no matter how well-intentioned that agenda might seem.

Don't scream. Whisper. Only then will the trees hear you.

I'd love to hear from you.
