    I wasn’t sure what I was feeling or how to find peace. After watching this and seeing this beautiful, resilient tree, I don’t feel so alone. The forest is with me.

    Thank you so much, redwoods especially ones like this one make me cry, also make me realize just how small and ungrateful the human race can be. I agree with Matthew, above, a longer video maybe an hour, for the big screen could be such a wonderful pacifier.
