JANUARY 26th DAY OF ACTION EXTINCTION REBELLION – US & DENVER

January 26 marked the first Meeting of the Denver-based Extinction Rebellion (XR) group. As I drove to the meeting from Longmont, 45 minutes to the north, four wild geese plummeted out of the sky into a field of corn stubble. It was a splendid sight as the group of four, in close formation, held their wings still and steady for their fast descent, and then opened them wide again, and with a gentle back motion, brought themselves softly to the ground.

On the radio, a special NPR program on altruism carried me all the way to the Denver skyline, a poignant sight against the snow-covered mountains rising into an austere blue sky. By the time I arrived, I was in a state of grace.

It was very easy to connect with those who came to the meeting, and the energy in the room was palpable: gentle, enthusiastic, and upbeat, but fully grounded in the stark reality we had come to address.

This was an important day for the Denver group, for New York City, and across the US.

  1. HI Rick Thanks for the mention. It may be my moment of fame at last. Well done you going to the Denver Extinction Rebellion event. I would like to hear more. It’s a small world, I stayed in Longmont with friends some years ago.

    1. Hi Nick. Good to hear from you. I think it was you who first clued me in on XR. Thanks much for that. I was able to attend the first meeting of XR in Denver and will be helping to establish XR in the Boulder-Longmont area also. All the best to you. rv
