Be Flexible – Palm trees survive the winds and storms of hurricanes because they are flexible. Have you even noticed how palm trees bend but don’t break? In fierce winds, including hurricane force winds, the palm tree remains standing. Its roots spread wide and very deep. This characteristic alone is amazing.
Be Welcoming – Researchers observed that palm trees that grow together with other palm trees survive storms with less damage than those growing by themselves. We are created to live as a community and as challenging as that can be at times, we thrive better together.
