“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. ”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

The feature photo of this post was taken at The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C., during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Mr. Roosevelt was passionate about the environment and understood the value of his country’s vast forests.  Trees give us the vital chemical we breathe.  Without oxygen, it would not be long before we became fertilizer for those same trees.  Trees are the world’s natural air fresheners, getting rid of a great deal of the pollution, much of which we produce.  Without trees it would be a stark, more depressing world and we would lose a great deal of our well-being.  FDR understood all of this.
