“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.”
In an age of instant communication, does a letter matter anymore?
How about a high-five? A fist bump?
Is a kind word or thought still important?
Does a promise matter?
How about a phone call?
What about holding a door for someone?
Does courtesy matter?
Is listening out of style?
Are hugs old-fashioned?
Are smiles antiquated?
They all matter. Just like a letter to a friend, soldier, or acquaintance matters.
The form isn’t important. What matters is that you cared.
Wrote a letter to a soldier. It’s the best help I knew how to give.
