about this story

The lonely palm tree just sat there and sat there and always thought to himself why wouldn't anyone come to his marvelous island but most of all he hated the rain because it would always blow off his sparkly leaves. They would take up to three months to grow. One day an explorer came to the marvelous island to build a place for people to live. The palm tree was happier than a blind person being able to see. When all the people came it was like world war two all over again. There were always riots because fast food places ran out of milk shakes, or because somebody did not want to clean the floor in the grocery stores. One day all the people went to the worship tree [palm tree].

He had told them all that fighting wasn't worth their time. The palm tree asked, "how did y'all even get here without fighting? Two weeks! You've all been here two weeks! That is a shame that y'all create such nonsense. You know I was so happy when I saw one person on this island but now it's nothing but fighting constantly and it's ridiculous. I thought it was going to be a fun island but no, I guess I thought wrong. All I want is for y'all to get along like a family. It was quiet before you came. Maybe it was better when I was alone." So the citizens went home and thought about it and they started to act like humans rather than little wolves fighting over food. The tree was happy again then it became a lovely island that people wanted to live in.
