To My Children,

I write you this letter in hopes for a better today, tomorrow, and future. It’s currently May 13, 2018. The time is 11:43pm. I writing this because the current state of the planet is on my mind. It’s been on my mind for quite some time. During the week of May 6-11, I was completely changed for the better. I attended a 6 day camp (Leadershape) focused on leadership with 60 other ECU students much like myself. At Leadershape, I along with others each found a vision that reflected on our inner passions. Mine was one focused on the environment, Latinx, and indigenous people of Latin America. It was a vision born on Day 3 of Leadershape, a day I will never forget. As I write to you now, I am still focusing on my vision in hopes that one day it will come true. Currently, I am doing research on the environment and ways I can help. I’ve been planting seeds along with my mom. We currently have 12 plants all ranging from succulents, sunflowers, bachelor buttons, and basil. I just hope the bee population will improve and that the people of this world will come to the realization that climate change is very much real. I wish you the best.

love,

Michelle Giron Morales

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Olá minhas Florzinhas!!!

Minhas florzinhas é isso…. vamos a batalha , procurar se informar sobre empresas que são amigas do meio ambiente, tentar banir as empresas que poluem nosso ar, nossos rios.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
