today, I learned that there are trees that survived the bombing at Hiroshima
trees a mere 700 meters from ground zero
There is a eucalyptus tree that survived the atomic bomb when the castle that surrounded it did not.
Read this, recall, and know: a castle vaporized. A tree survived. That they stood in the face of the horror there and said we remember, we witness, and we yet live.
Trees are cool, man.
