When was the last time you wrote a letter or sent someone a card? Before texting, DMs, emails, e-cards, and social media this was the way people communicated. These are timeless methods of expression that are so rare, they are almost considered regal.
In a rapidly growing, technology-driven world, it is easy to forget the heart-warming impact that genuine hand-written expressions can have. With the tragedy of COVID-19 stopping the world in its tracks, reaching out with expressions of care and empathy albeit, from a distance, has never been more important.
There's no question that mandatory quarantines have given us all a bit more time than we're used to. Lets make the most of it and stick together while apart.
Write grandma and granddaddy a letter. Send that auntie or uncle a birthday card, or better yet, instead of a text, send that bestie a card, thanking him or her for always having your back.
