National Letter Writing Week

Woman Reading a Letter(Source)

In todays digital age, letter writing has fallen out of style, replaced with texts, emails and Google chat.  As a genealogist and one who has done an internship in an Archive, I find this sad, as all of these will easily disappear and no one will be able to read them in the future.  This is unlike letters on paper, which have lasted for centuries and give a view of history that is more personal and interesting than is found in books.  This week is National Letter Writing Week.  Write and mail a letter to a loved one today.
