RAK staff spent the day in Pueblo, CO and had the most amazing experience visiting the Pueblo Academy of Arts. Without exception, every single person we came in contact with embodied kindness beyond anything we've ever seen. Pictured here, the students and staff sit in the middle of a stone labyrinth designed and created by students in what used to be a tennis court (later filled in with sand rendering it unusable). Instead of leaving it as an eyesore, they created a walking labyrinth with a student-made wooden reflection bench at the center. Each rock had positive messages written on them by the students so the walker feels motivated, welcomed and loved as they walk through it. Pueblo, CO has been trying to rise above a bad reputation surrounding their schools, crime, gangs, poverty, etc. We saw the future of this city today and there is no doubt they are changing the way people view their community. It was quite fitting that the mascot for this school is the Phoenix.
