Roots

The giant sequoias in California have a lesson to teach us. The sequoia tree's roots just barely grow below the surface of the ground. You may think that’s impossible. If a tree's roots don't grow deep into the earth, won't it fall over in the wind? Not so, for the sequoias. They grow only in groves, and their roots inter-twine underground, so when strong winds blow, they hold each other up.

People are like the giant sequoias. Family, friends, neighbors, religious organizations, and other groups --

like Cub Scout packs – should be havens, like a grove of trees, so that when the strong winds of life blow, we can strive together to hold each other up. May soft winds blow until we meet again. Good night.
