The important things

Dear Editor:

After inquiring about the end of the season Thanksiving Blessing given annually by the Ute Native Americans at the base of Aspen Mountain, I was informed there was not to be one this year.

I shared this heartfelt information with an elder of the Aspen community. His reply was “it’s interesting that when hard times come we forget the important things.”
