This quote by the renowned writer, poet and philosopher Kahlil Gibran speaks to me deeply. I love trees. It seems to me that we strip the Earth so carelessly, without reverence for other life on the planet, as though it is ours just for the taking. We then turn around and feel this vast emptiness; life a times feels like it lacks meaning. It has no meaning when we do not feel reverence for it, the gift that all life is.
When humanity as a collective begins to truly cherish and respect all life on Earth, things will begin to change.
