Why have I chosen Redwood trees to stand sentinel here? Well, I have a deep connection with them of course. But they are also a wonderful metaphor for supportive community. They are not ashamed to grow to be the tallest trees in the world. Yet their roots reach wide, and they nurture new growths from their own roots, forming beautiful rings of trees. And they not only survive, but thrive in the fires that inevitably sweep their communities.
