Everyone loves getting letters. But in order to receive you need to give. There is a website that promotes "helping to save the USPS" with a unique idea. It encourages readers to pledge to write one letter a month.
Ok, we know that as digitial communication grows, the art of letter writing fades. Maybe we even buy that a world without letters may quickly be upon us. Many of us are skeptical, however, that a letter writing campaign can solve the USPS financial problems. Many of you wrote comments about this on a previous post on September 29th.
But consider what this website proclaims that letter writing is a part of our heritage, and keeping the mail going will help keep a part of our history alive. What will the historic letters of this generation be?
It further states that handwritten words of intimacy conquer any distance or length of time. What letter do you keep tucked away to be read over and over?
Whether it will help save the Postal Service or not, maybe we should not lose something so important as hand written or hard copy letters.
Would you be willing to write one letter a month? If so, visit the blog tomorrow for some letter writing ideas.
