The Protector

submitted by James Dickson who wrote this about it:
This is a very old tree in Honolulu, Hawaii. It faces the sand and ocean off Waikiki beach. It looms over all, large and tall, ever watchful of the island border. Together, along with the statue of the first King of Hawaii, Kamehameha the Great, they stand. When I first went beneath this behemoth, I truly felt lost within it's presence. It only added to what was already a fantastic experience in my life.
