There's a new brand sound in our neighborhood this week.  It's the sound of heavy equipment killing trees.  In three short days, they've destroyed trees that had been growing for a hundred years.  Those trees were saplings during World War I, and now, in three short days, they're gone, and we're left looking at too much sky.  It just goes to show that growing something takes a whole lot longer than tearing it down.

"With his words, the hypocrite destroys his neighbor." Proverbs 11:9
