Becoming A Hero For The Planet

By Dakota Palacio

I recently went to the movies to look at what I believe is a fantastic story. This movie is called 'The Last Mimzy'. I find that it's more than a science fiction movie. It is a lesson to today's generation.

The media has tried to make it an issue with Eastern Mysticism saying that it's all just an issue with those people but, it's not. It is a global issue that is facing everyone.

A brief description of what the Last Mimzy is about -- these two children go on Easter vacation to their beach house on Whimby Island. They don't seem too excited about going and don't want to leave their friends behind. Once at the beach house they go exploring one day and find a box on the beach. They sneak it back into their bedroom where they find it opens and there are things like they've never seen before. Emma the youngest finds several things inside, including one cute, cuddly stuffed animal named Mimzy. The bunny whispers to Emma about the world, how people from their future are dying and the planet is dying because no one took time to stop the things that are killing the animals and us.

This is a great story on how Noah and Emma find out how to get Mimzy back to the future, save the people in the future and how to stop what will kill the planet. Even things today hurt our planet and very few seem to be paying attention. Little things, like leaving water on when you brush your teeth, leaving the lights on when your not home, driving huge cars with only one person driving and not a family who needs a large car. Those actions waste water, electricity and gas. Water polution kills the plankton, which kills the metapods that eat them, small fish, larger fish, dolphins and whales. Everything is a huge circle. One thing you do effects the whole.

Endangered animals are dying and becoming extinct like the Spirit Bear, elephants, rhinos, leapords and blue whales. Did you know that they've just added the hippo to the endangered species list? Is it going to take adding the word human before anyone does anything?

I have questions for all parents out there that worry about what school or college your children will attend and I wonder if you ever wonder if their will still be a planet around at that time. Shouldn't we consider global health too?

You kids out there, we can stop this! We are the generation that can turn this around, we can educate others and take action now.

I think about it a lot and I can't believe I came to this planet to watch it die. I believe that I came to watch everyone instill compassion and love into this Earth to save it and to protect it, not to mention all it's inhabitants.

After all she's protected us for so long, now it's our turn to take care of her. So stand up and help, become the voice for our future.

Become a hero for the planet.
