Like a Baobab tree she was deep rooted as her roots ran deeper into the solid ground. She stood unshaken and unbent by the raging storms around her as she stood firm above the ground.

She was indeed a colossus that trodded this land leaving footprints deep into the ground as evidence that indeed she has passed.
