Heard any big ideas lately?
I just heard of a beautiful and touching one: the Anne Frank Sapling Project.
Seeds from the chestnut tree that Anne Frank saw when she was in hiding from the Nazis have been nurtured and grown into saplings. Now 11 of them will be planted in the U.S!
I learned about all this from an AP article on sfgate.com. It mentioned in passing that one would be planted in California. It’s a big state! Where in California?
Answer: Sonoma State.
Congratulations to all who’ve worked to make this project a reality.
What a brilliant, living tribute to hope and life — and a new coda to the heartbreaking story of Anne Frank and all the other Holocaust victims who perished.Update: Here’s more info about the tree planting.
