tree

amazing. today a tree fell in the front of our school. it was a stately oak. I'm so sorry to see it go, but it has to go and so does the other oak. Safety is important at a school. Luckily this fell while kids were in classes. THUNK! it took out the flag pole too! I think of when this tree was planted and all the students who walked under it, how many hugged each other, or kissed. How many art classes drew a picture of it. Who enjoyed it's shade.
My plans are to be sure we plant a new one in it's place. 30 years from now, we'll drive by that 'new' tree and be happy to see it there.
