For those who take these words to heart, “love others” has profound, life-altering implications, not all of which are warm and fuzzy. Consider the life of Bernard Lichtenberg, arrested seven decades ago. His crime: He loved. Lichtenberg was a Catholic priest serving in Berlin before the outbreak of World War 2.

Near Mpumalanga, South Africa, are the marvelous and mysterious Echo Caves. Rediscovered in the last century and turned into a tourist site, these caverns are home to a truly remarkable ecosystem.

What makes them so famous is the unseen: Their roots. Researchers and spelunking scientists have followed the roots of these trees deep into Echo Caves — 400 feet deep to be precise — the deepest known root system in the world.

Interestingly, our state boasts the longest contiguous stretches of one of the most storied highways in America — Route 66, also known as The Mother Road. The route — which opened in 1926 and originally ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, Calif. — was a key thoroughfare for families migrating west during the Dust Bowl years of the 1930s. It soon came to symbolize freedom and opportunity and still remains one of the most recognizable symbols of Americana around the world.
