Finding inspiration in a dreary day

Even dreary, late fall days cannot stop CHS students from finding beauty and inspiration wherever they look.

A few CHS students were asked if they would like to contribute to the challenge of finding something extraordinary in the ordinary or often overlooked. They captured this moment in a picture of an object, person, or place where they found inspiration, and explained their insight.

“Extraordinary magic is woven through ordinary life. Look around!”

Amy Leigh Mercree

“You can find something truly important in an ordinary minute.”

Mitch Albom

I am inspired by the power of music. I love how it brings me creativity and joy. It inspires me to do my best everyday. –Olivia Thomas
These types of trees are inspirational to me because it varies in colors each season. Also, trees provide us with many benefits necessary for survival, including clean air, filtered water, shade, and food. They also give us hope and insight, and courage to persevere even in the harshest conditions. Trees teach us to stay rooted while soaring to great heights.  -Nyasia Butler
