The above sign is now posted at the end of a boardwalk at Panola Mountain State Park. It is meant to make people understand the fragile plants in the area. Seems to me that there is a lesson here that could be applied to life in general.

Bill Withers had a big hit with "Lean On Me" in 1972. I think that this song goes along with my thinking for this post.
