A mythical bird, the phoenix cyclically burns to death and is reborn from its own ashes. For this reason, the phoenix often serves as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. The name of Phoenix, Arizona is a direct reference to this idea; Phoenix was built upon the ruins of a civilization that had collapsed long before, apparently due to drought. Just like the Phoenix may we rise from the ashes of destruction to a kinder gentler version of ourselves.
