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
