The Tree of Life
People are like trees. With their roots planted firmly in the soil, trees stand tall and straight, and survive inclement weather. Likewise, people whose roots are planted firmly in family grow up strong and healthy, and survive adverse events. But without strong roots, both people and trees become weak and frail. Ideally, society is like an orchard, in which the strong and healthy shelter the weak and frail, so that all life has a chance to be fruitful.
