Aspen Youth March for the Climate Crisis

C³ We Care about the Climate Crisis 

In an effort to inspire students and the greater community to learn more about, and then rise to the challenge of taking action in the global climate crisis Aspen Middle School Art Teacher, Rae Lampe, invited students & teachers to gather together as human paint drops to join in creating a giant snowflake showing we are all part of the bigger picture.

Beautiful photos taken by Cathy Miller Images captured Aspen students marching to city hall yesterday to speak out about the climate crisis, and as per the Aspen Times,  asking city and government officials to declare a climate emergency; support the federal Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, which encourages a market driven push toward clean energy by taxing carbon at the point of extraction; ban single-use plastics; and ensure solar and renewable energy is incorporated into all new buildings.

As they marched to city hall students chanted, “no more coal, no more oil, keep that carbon in the soil!”

We are all part of the bigger picture and it is our responsibility to show we care.

Rae Lampe

If many little people do many little things in many little places they can change the face of the Earth.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
