Many people today hardly ever write. They are more on the internet getting and sending e-mails and e-letters e.tc. Nothing is wrong with that mind you, to each his or her own. But letter writing is becoming a thing of the past. People are always very surprised went I tell them I have between 65-70 pen-pals and that I hand write all my letters. It is so great when I received a letter from a friend, with the internet you cannot send anything that they may collect, or send them a gift or even a real photo. The internet has some advantages, but it can and never will be more rewarding, than seeing and getting a snail mail letter from a friend.
