A touching film showed at Live Earth New York, and somehow all of Ecorazzi missed it. Ecorazzi reader Reid has been kind enough to send us a note, telling us about this story that really touched our hearts and will certainly touch yours. Reid writes:

Last October a UVM student, Michelle Gardner Quinn, was brutally raped and murdered after a night out in Burlington, Vermont. Michelle was my neighbor and former co-worker.

Michelle was an amazing young woman who deeply cared about the environment. Two days before her death she wrote an essay for an environment class she had. At Live Earth a video was shown that had celebrities such as Goldie Hawn, The Duchess of York, Kate Hudson, Sheryl Crow, Meg Ryan and Tipper Gore, along with Michelle’s mother, holding Michelle’s picture and reciting lines from this essay.

Watch the video below, or read her essay, “This I Believe”, on the Michelle’s Earth Foundation website.
