Shared Humanity in Jordan
Aseel Zahran from Jordan sends us this message:
In honor of Green World Campaign, a group of volunteers from the Abraham's Path Initiative organized a small tree planting event in Amman. Ruba, Shatha, Aseel and Mais are four young people who are committed to keeping the Abrahamic Path in Jordan alive and maintaining the historical route, thus offering a place of meeting and connection for people of all faiths and cultures, and invite others to remember our common origins, respect our cultural differences, and recognize our shared humanity.
While looking for a tree to plant for the event, one of the volunteers, Shatha, found a plum tree lying in an old tin with little soil and water and decided it was the ideal choice. Despite being neglected, the tree was in pretty good shape, standing still, waiting for someone nourish it. Shatha asked that the tree be planted in her backyard near her window where she can see it every morning, to remember the power of nature in facing all odds and remind herself that small things can make all the great difference in our world.
(If you are planting trees please send us your stories and photos and we will share them here!)
