Illustration Friday - Roots
Nature, in all its sublime beauty and power, has no sense of what it does. Unlike humans, Nature can't choose to do good or evil; and its actions are just part of what Nature is. Its breezes gently scatter seeds to take root and grow where they land as impassively as its winds hurl destruction. I am thinking not only of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, but of all the people who have been uprooted by both natural and human forces. I pray that they will find themselves again in a place where they can take root.
