This sad tree stands forlornly on a hill in Noble County Ohio overlooking a state prison there. I thought the tree had a character all its own. It is bent, broken and appears to be only half alive. Yet it survives to see the coming sunset and sunrise day after day after day. Then I got to thinking, there are probably a lot of similarities between this tree and the guys locked up inside that barbed wire fence. I’ll bet untold numbers of them look at this tree each day and think how much better off it is than they are. Just a thought.
