Think you're important? Stand next to a redwood tree. Try to see the top more than 300 feet above you. Listen the the stillness that has surrounded these giants for more than 1000 years. Walk among the fallen giants that will lie there on the forest floor for hundreds of years before they decompose. Consider the folly of chainsawing one of these wonders to be able to buy a box of tacos. If you're short on heros, consider a young woman who would sit in the top of a tree named Luna for nearly 2 years to save it's life. I appreciate the beauty of redwood lumber, but some things should have priority over man's ability to destroy.
