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

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.
