In reference to the Washington examiner author, Taylor Holland, the Arlington Cemetery would spare just eight of nearly 900 trees in expansion was alarming for several reasons. The reality of so many of our soldiers risking their lives for a senseless war. The frustration of how little could be compromised to save the environment. The lack of forecasting the impact of the animals. And what happens when this plan meets it capacity?
Of course, complaining is easier than finding a solution, but as environmentally conscious people, we can provide some solutions for consideration. Obviously, the public is unaware of many constraints, but by not knowing the constraints can sometimes create more creative ideas. So what are your suggestions? Can we go to the root of the problem and avoid senseless war? Can we provide various home-going practices (i.e. cremation, stacking smaller family member burial plots, etc.)? Can we find an Architect or Landscaping Architect who has the creativity to work around the trees? What will happen to the destroyed trees?
So many questions, so many suggestions, whatever the decision continue to visit The official website of Arlington National Cemetery www.arlingtoncemetery.mil for the latest information.
