I stepped off the trail to take a piss. I looked up and an old pine tree caught my eye, I smiled and said "Hello, old timer." As I started to walk away the old tree grabbed my arm tightly and said "I may be rugged in my beauty, but I am fragile in my nature. I am holding on to this life, holding on with everything that I've got, but my time here is limited, it is almost out. I need you, we need you. We need you to stand strong and fight. Fight for those of us who have no voice. Fight for future generations so we can live and thrive. You are us and we are you. Do not forget."
