"The question is not 'Can you make a difference?' You already do make a difference.
It's just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make during your life on this planet."
– Julia Butterfly Hill
Hill is best known for living in a 180-foot (55 m)-tall, 1,000-year-old California Redwood tree for 738 days between December 10, 1997 to December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent loggers of the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down.
