“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”

Wait, wait, wait, I have an amazing new idea. How about we fix the American school system.
one of my sisters friends got told last week that her natural hair was too blonde and that she needed to die it brown or she would get isolation for a week. Another of her friends had braids to make her Afro more manageable in the hot weather and to keep her head cooler and was told she had to take them out or cut them off.
