We have a survivor tree at the OKC bombing memorial as well. People like the symbolism.
Serious question but how do you nurse a tree? Throw water over it?

Now I haven’t cried in a long time, but just the sheer weight of it all got to me and it was a real struggle to hold it together.
My first thought was 'I wonder what the odds are that in my lifetime someone mistakenly cuts it down.' Man, am I not an optimistic person these day.
I want four cloaked and helmed members of the Marine Corps guarding it with pikes at all times.
I understand that *resilience* refers to those psychologically and physically affected by the attack, but what does *survival* and *rebirth* mean in the context of 9/11?
guess silverstein doesnt get to cash in on the tree-insurance...
