A Tear Shed...Renewal for Anne Frank's Tree Will Occur!

Little drives me to tears today.....but this does.

Many of us remember, with emotion, the story of Anne Frank....her diary brought the Holocaust to millions.

Those who know the story know she was living in a limited world of little other than a view of a tree. That tree, while still in existence, is dying.

How very, very sad......BUT

As hope springs does the tree..

"And a sapling from grafts of Anne’s tree is now growing in a nursery. As soon as her tree is cut down, this sapling, with the same DNA, will be planted in its place."

The tree is dying, and will not be saved.....but it will be replaced by a tree from the very growth Anne saw......How very, very nice!
