The Leaning Tower will Survive a Little Longer

leaning tower of pisa

A very long time ago, an architect who didn’t know all that much designed a tower in Pisa, Italy. He placed some stone upon some very soft land, so naturally the tower started leaning and leaning and leaning.

Luckily, in a joint global effort, it hasn’t fallen over yet. People come from all over the world and take turns supporting the tower. It has so many shoulders (and hands) to lean on that as of now, it’s still staying strong. Just a little lopsided, is all.

Global cooperation may seem hard to come by these days. But in some rare and beautiful cases, we still do witness human beings from all walks of life joining together to save the day.

Or at least a very old and pretty tower.
