I visited the World Trade Center Memorial this past weekend. After the attack on 9-11, a severely damaged tree was found under the rubble.

ground zero

Against all odds, it survived.

Replanted to another location, it was nurtured to health, and brought back to the World Trade Center Memorial.

It is known as the survival tree.

On Saturday, new buds of hope and healing.


If a tree can survive, can’t you?
