Weeky Photo Prompt: Resilient

Our Uncle Yakob, who lived a long and healthy life until his passing at the age of 107. Resilient he was, fleeing Poland at the onset of WWII, going to Germany, Italy, Panama and eventually finding his way to the United States. He lived his life with a positive outlook which we try to take a lesson from. uncleyakobthennow

My grandfather planted this tree when I was born, it was just a sapling at that time. It has grown these 59 years and still remains standing. Though my grandfather is gone 20 years, I had the opportunity a few years ago to visit his home and the present owners let me walk around and there I found the tree still standing.
