TREES – UNSELFISHNESS
17 October 2012
In the next suburb (Winston Park) from where I stay (Hillcrest) there is this row of trees that probably stretches on for about 5km.
The trees are spectacular.
(Don’t ask me what type of tree they are.)
And I can imagine they are decades old.
What is remarkable about these trees planted along each side of the road is the unselfishness they represent.
My brother enlightened me to this truth a few months back.
Maybe two generations ago some people decided to plant these trees, knowing that in their life time, they wouldn’t see the full splendour of the trees that they have planted.
But they planted them anyway.
And about two generations later, we get to see and marvel over the beauty of these very tall and spectacular trees.
How unselfish of those people two of even three generations back.
Sometimes people do beautiful things for others.
