In the movie Guardians of the Galaxy there is a character named Groot.

He is a tree/root.

Throughout the movie he tries to make all the characters get along with one another...

they all come from different planets and places and ways of thinking

and he says "I am groot."

toward the end of the movie he gives his life to save his friends by wrapping them in his

root/vine/branches and tells them

"We are Groot"

Which is what I believe

We are the ones with the keys to saving the universe.

We are the guardians of the galaxy.

We are ultimately the carriers of what happens here.

What happens to one of us happens to all of us. 

We are groot.


  1. I don't know the movie but the text touches me..... and beeing Dutch, the word "Groot" (don't know how it is pronounced in the movie : groot or g-root) but Groot in my native tongue means 'large, big, enormous'.

  2. When I woke up this morning your blog came into my mind and I felt I should come over here and see what I'm supposed to see. I've not seen this movie but I can certainly understand the message. Thank you for this gentle reminder.

    I also felt I was supposed to see your Sunday post. The Golden Rule has been passing through my mind with more frequency along with a deeper desire to practice it in every circumstance. So, I also thank you for that. :)

  3. Interesting and meaningful post!

  4. We ARE Groot. We NEED to be Groot. Or we'll all drift away...

  5. What an interesting word.... GROOT !
    I am Groot, WE are All GROOT...
    and if you're not GROOT
    you jolly WELL should be or....
    YOU will come to no GROOT.
    Most interesting I am WELL into the GROOT WORD
    Thank you for the enlightlement.

    Best WISHES,
    ABCW team.
