Why write letters? Because it’s good for you, for the receiver, and for our public postal service
1. It’s good for you, the sender: When you express your outrage, vision, or questions by writing a letter, you realize or remember what matters to you, you strengthen your own power.
2. It’s good for the receiver: What a joy to receive a personal letter. Someone took the time to bother-to think, to write, and then send it to you. Phone calls, emails are quick, convenient, but a letter is a tangible, visible expression that someone is paying attention to you, appreciates you, cares what you do, needs your help to build a better community.
3. It’s good for our public postal service. Use it or lose it. Buy, use, give beautiful “Forever” postage stamps… or you may not “know what you’ve got until it’s gone”.
