Serotiny refers to the process of seeds using the destructive power of fire to trigger the germination of new growth. On the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, the organization Lead to Life gathered in Atlanta to honor the life of gun victims by putting weapons of killing through fire to forge shovels; plant trees to honor those lives with shovels created from that process; and share the journey with others in public ceremony. Share in the ceremony of this magical process.

    The beautiful and creative idea of forging shovels from weapons of killing and planting trees with them to honor the lives of gun victims. I hope this happens in many places as it's a strong statement of peace.
