Finally, my region became more lenient towards restrictions and the curfew was shifted from 10pm to 11pm. Therefore, I decided it was the perfect timing to plant an olive tree, and join the #GreenRotary celebration. Despite being the symbol of peace worldwide, it is a resilient plant that will eventually keep on growing, unraveling its roots deep in the soil.

I feel that this tree also represents our friendship that keeps furthering throughout these years even if I am currently back in Italy. It is with great pride that I keep on being involved within the Bonita Springs Rotary Club, and that I partake in the #GreenRotary initiative.
