Anaconda, Community, and Family: Florida Woman Marries 100-Year-Old Tree To Save lt From Being Chopped Down: "If They Cut Down This Tree, l'm Going To Be A Widow" @balleralert Florida Woman Marries 100-Year-Old Tree To Save It From Being Chopped Down: “If They Cut Down This Tree, I’m Going To Be A Widow” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an effort to save a 100-year-old tree, a Florida woman has asked for its branch in marriage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Miami Herald, the tree became part of a neighborhood controversy after Fort Myers city staff discussed chopping it down last year, despite its history in the Snell Family Park. However, after months of planning, the city agreed to a $13,000 spending budget to chop the tree, which in turn, sparked widespread backlash among those fond of the giant ficus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In fact, one woman took matters into her own hands, using tips from women who’ve been protesting deforestation in Mexico. Over the weekend, Karen Cooper jumped the broom with the tree in an attempt to save it from being cut down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a waterfront ceremony that took place on Saturday, Cooper and a slew of other women who were dressed in white vowed to honor and protect the tree. The wedding was filled with the works, including flowers, a tree-decorated wedding cake, and a canine ring-bearer, as it was staged just three days before Tuesday’s meeting about the tree’s fate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then though, a spokesperson for the city, revealed that it is moving forward to save the beloved tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Everyday city employees care for the trees and plants that give our city a sense of community and shared history,” the spokesperson said. However, the tree’s fate is not completely secure just yet, Cooper says. Tuesday will be the determining factor, and if the Beautification Board does not agree to save the tree, the city’s councilman vowed to bring the issue to City Council. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "If they cut down this tree, I'm going to be a widow," Cooper said.

Bless Up, Children, and Fall: This dog lives beside my sister's school he drops by and waits patiently for the kids to pet him. @DrSmashlove Reddit u/seanc90 Nicholas Dworet was a handsome young man with a wonderful smile who was going to swim at the University of Indianapolis. He won’t be swimming at Indy this fall because he was shot and killed in the Parkland shooting. Scott Beigel was a geography teacher. He taught kids in Florida about the world beyond them. He won’t be teaching children any more because he was shot and killed ushering students into a classroom - we know that because Kelsey Friend, one of his students, tearfully stated that he saved her life. Aaron Feis, a football coach, ran TOWARD the bullets to save his students - shot and killed - we know this on the authority of Colton Haab, a 17 year old student who witnessed all of it. Joaquin Oliver migrated from Venezuela at age 3 to have a better life here. He just got his citizenship last year. His friends called him “Guac”. Shot and killed attending school. Alyssa Alhadeff. Martin Duque Anguiano. Jaime Guttenberg. Chris Hixon - athletic director - “awesome husband” - a teacher who gave kids lunch money if they needed it. Luke Hoyer. Cara Loughran. Gina Montalto. Alaina Petty. Meadow Pollack. Helena Ramsay. Alex Schachter. Carmen Schentrup. Peter Wang. That’s too many names! Too many! Too many 😢. Honor them today. Honor them with change so that their death was not in vain. Let’s make sure that thoughts and prayers don’t carry the day this time. We can do more so let’s do it. Bless up 😞
