On October 7, 2006 Michelle Gardner-Quinn was brutally murdered. She was a UVM student. She was taken from our downtown streets and forever taken away from us. I did not know her personally but the crime shook up our entire community.
Two days before she was murdered she submitted an essay to her environmental studies class. This video made for Live Earth contains experts of that essay. The essay is read by Tipper Gore, Sarah Ferguson the Duchess of York, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Sheryl Crow, Meg Ryan, Emily Proctor and Michelle's Mother Diane Gardner Quinn.
