This was once a mangrove forest. There is an information notice not far from here that says so. It gives a long list of things that the forest was used for: the soap that we use to clean ourselves is all I remember. Then it goes on to boast about how it was decided one day to stop pulling it up and leave some to grow back for our kids to enjoy in the future.
There was a part of me thinking we are either blindly greedy by our nature, or simply optimistic. Then there was another part of me making promises to my God even though the sight of that one last chance against the setting sun was much too beautiful for words to make me feel threatened.
