Hold a seed in your hand. Look at it. That seed will have to undergo internal tension and split apart in order to grow. Even
the smallest surviving sprout will endure the heat of day, the cold of
night, trampling paws, voracious pests, battering thunderstorms in
season, and minimal water in others. Out of those
struggles however will come something that can withstand incredible
external forces and continue to mature in strength and beauty.
