There are certain things in life that you just have to see to understand. I supposed most things in life are that way actually. However, certain images come to mind when we think about trees and there's just no comparing the trees we pass by each day to a sequoia tree. Being in a sequoia forest brings about a sense of reverence and respect that is hard to find in other places. We had an amazing few nights camping near these giants.

|Baby sequoias. Cue the "awww!"|
I think of this story and how it might apply to me. Where are the places in my life where I’m being short-sighted or greedy? If my small choices and actions were amplified, would I be the one cutting down sequoias for quick profit? Where can I slow down, observe and apply wisdom so that future generations aren’t looking back in disgust?
