The importance of symbols in Palestine – The Olive Tree

The Olive Tree

Olive trees are resistant,

Resistant to drought and poor soil,

Resistant to soaring temperatures and freak snowstorms,

Resistant to the passing of time and the changing of hands.

Branches may droop,

But roots cling to the soil.

Thousands uprooted,

But thousands more remain.

Hardy,

Steadfast,

Strong.

Olive trees in Ramallah
