Susi Newborn staged her first direct protest action before she was even in Kindergarten. She pressed her small back against an old growth fir tree in her front yard, and refused to move. The shade of the big tree made the front rooms of the house gloomy and her mother had asked her father to chop it down that morning. Susi stayed firmly planted, even as the sun went down, even when the family doctor was called. The Dr. pronounced her healthy and unusually bold, and the tree was saved.
