Reader asks why
What kind of mentality
does it take to change
an attitude, a tradition, a
As we have watched,
worried and wept over years
of numerous devastating
fires, deadly conflagrations of
forests and towns, why can’t
we begin to change our ways?
With the loss of hundreds of
thousands of acres of trees,
why must we continue to cut
down more for our few weeks
of holiday celebration?
Why not, in our
immense desire to heal our
natural world, don’t we
all consider a live tree to
add to our family’s joy and
care. Imagine, each family,
business establishment,
organization, offices and
schools, nurturing and
growing their own Christmas
tree year round, to become a
member of the family, a living
tree, which the children will
for year upon year grow with,
care for, and keep growing
strong and healthy. Imagine
thousands, millions of live
trees throughout every home.
Why not? The change
starts with individual thought,
with family decision making,
with a small yet powerful
mindset choice of life over
death. Don’t we grow sick and
tired of seeing all those dead,
used up trees tossed out on the
side of our already trash heap
roads? Can’t we be done with
our throwaway traditions,
our “use it and discard it”
Just a simple idea,
purchase a live tree to grow
up with the family, or, just
decorate a front yard tree.
Leave the trees to do their
work, give us clean air and
joy of life.
