I saw this in one of the student lounges at the local JCC.

It says:

“Don’t Cut Down Others”

It’s far better to build people up then to tear them down.

Jut like with trees, it’s better to plant a trillion trees than deforest the Amazon Rainforest.

Trees are life and people are life.

Be constructive and not destructive.

Offer a nice word or compliment; provide an attentive and empathetic ear; give direction with some advice or guidance; lend a hand to someone in need; and in general, be a good influence.

Unfortunately, too many people default to cutting down the old cherry tree! ;-)
