Eventually, in what looks about 70 years based on the dates of the lava flows, the rainforest grows in. The tree trunks you see are the matured red-flowering shrub, while the palms or giant ferns, I am not sure what they are, grow in their shade. Eventually the palms become as large as the flowering trees, and form a thick canopy.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
