Andrew Botz: No Ordinary Hole

This is a hole. But it’s no ordinary hole. It holds my hopes and dreams for a brighter future. Because this hole will grow into a pond, and the pond will bring color and life back to a land left in the shadow of modernization. The grass is dead. The trees are dead. But above, in the clouds, there is the promise of rain. All the land needs is something to hold it. BECY strives to restore the environment, and it’s my turn to build this pond, because it’s the only hope this world has. All great changes begin with something small, and this pond will lead trees great and tall to animals returned to their homes, to a restoration of the borderlands.
