Why Not Write Somebody a Real Letter?
When was the last time you found a letter from a friend or family member in your mailbox?
Many of us have not received a letter by snail mail in several years – aside from cards at holidays and birthdays.
A letter is something you can keep, whereas emails are fleeting. Computers can break down or emails can be deleted accidentally. Therefore, we can lose a piece of communication forever.
Besides, it is often the case that one can say more in a letter than in an email.
snail mail: mail sent by post.
fleeting: not lasting, temporary.
