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

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

Dear Granddaughter Rosalia,

This is my heritage for you my beautiful cacheticos de melon.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
