There is a story from Biosphere II and veriﬁed by employees, that years after Biosphere II was built outside of Tucson, Arizona, the trees inside started to fall over. It caused a lot of concern for those responsible, because even though they discovered that the roots were only a few inches deep, they could ﬁnd no sign of disease or mold, or any other reason, for the trees to be so unstable. The scientists ﬁnally decided that because there was no wind inside the Biosphere, the roots did not need to grow deep to hold up the trees, as one of the reasons for trees to sink deep roots is to counter the force of the wind. It makes sense that without a certain amount of stress produced by the wind, the trees would not grow deep roots and therefore stand tall. Perhaps it is true also that without a certain amount of challenge, our children’s roots cannot grow deep either. In other words, perhaps children need challenge or stress in their lives to become resilient just like the trees in the forest. As Easterbrooks, Ginsburg, and Lerner (2013) explain, “to better serve military children, we must understand the sources of strength that help them cope with adversity and thrive. In other words, we must understand their resilience” (p. 99). So what are the unique struggles of the military child? Where do they go for help? What it is like to be a nomad, to not have a place you call home? And what are the strengths that result from these challenges? How do military children become so resilient?
