The Stand on Sycamore Tree

The Brave Juli Baker, a young student, has a extreme passion for the sycamore tree. "I go up there everyday before school to watch the sunset. My dad once told me something that relates to the tree so when I'm up there I feel a connection to my dad." Juli told reporters.

Then everything changed when she figured out they were cutting down the sycamore tree. "I got up early that day, just like any day, but then I saw the sycamore tree. People were cutting down the tree so I panicked, climbed up into the tree, and refused to come down." She said. The workers tried to get her down but she was persistent.

"I understood my dad in that tree," Juli told them. After they got her down she ran home sobbing. Just by looking in her eyes you can see the anger, disappointment, and sorrow she is feeling. If one person felt so strongly for the tree why did we cut it down anyways?
