Roots of a tree can become entangled, twisted, torn and upturned. This results from abandonment. Abandoning the roots of the tree leads to its demise. The tree’s strength is in the roots. Without strong roots, the branches and limbs can’t survive.
If we abandon our roots of our family tree, we destroy our connection to our ancestors. If we lose that connection, we lose our unique sense of identity. We also lose our vitality as the new limbs and promising branches of an ancient, singular and great tree. If we don’t know our ancestors, their stories and their plights, we can’t fully understand who we really are and the dreams, victories and tragedies that we carry deep in our being.
