Be-leave in your ability to make change happen. This Oak tree in the Legacy Center arboretum stands for many things. It stands for strength; dig deep to find your strength. It stands for love across generations; I planted it for my father when he passed away. It stands for renewal; our planet needs more trees to heal itself. And it stands for the change you can help make happen. You might not have the influence or resources to change the world – the entire tree – but you can always help grow a new leaf. Every leaf makes the tree stronger and more magnificent. Be-leave in your ability to make change happen.
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
