Behind our library there was a wooded area. I loved looking outside from the library window and seeing the colors of the trees in autumn, new buds blooming in the spring, shade for the animals in the summer, and snow covered wonderland in winter. Yesterday instead of seeing the world turning green, I saw branches laying on the ground and stumps that were once giant trees, was all that was left. This spot of the world no longer had the melody of birds in the daylight, now all thats left is the roaring noise of machines.
Not sure what will be there in place of those trees; all I know is that the next time I am in the area, it will never be the same.
