In November of 2007, I lost my best friend to domestic violence. I personally witnessed the true enormity, of the grief suffered by her young son and parents. As well as dealing with my personal grief and the shock and trauma my own children suffered when Alana past away.
My entire family, although not directly connected, have been shocked to the core. Through the months following Alana’s death, whilst grieving, my friend/mentor and I came upon and idea to plant tress as living memorials to those lives lost due to family violence. In a sense to bring life back to our earth where life has been lost.
This idea was to start a project within the community to bring awareness about domestic violence, with the goal being that by doing this; we could bring change and save lives.
The planting of trees/plantation is very symbolic of the project
