I ended up in the Conifer Garden and suddenly realized how beautiful the area was. Next, I made the connection that here I was; enjoying the beauty that these trees provided such a short time after I had the near miss with the large boards on the expressway. It made me happy that I was given this gift of beauty from the same thing that could have caused me great injury just a little while earlier. God is good!
There is new life in the soil for every man. There is healing in the trees for tired minds and for our overburdened spirits, there is strength in the hills, if only we will lift up our eyes. Remember that nature is your great restorer. CALVIN COOLIDGE, speech, Jul. 25, 1924
