When Teddy Roosevelt was 25 years old, his wife and mom both died, he was heartbroken. He found solace in nature. At this time the redwood trees were being logged heavily, 95% of them were cut down. Roosevelt read some of John Muir’s writings and went to meet him. They camped together for 3 days and from this, the National Park system came into being.
Humans are incredible beings when aligned with a higher calling, and deep internal love and truth.
