When was the last time you wrote a snail mail letter
With modern technology, email, Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, Skype, Zoom, etc. have taken the place of good ol' fashion letter writing. Where has the traditional greeting card and stationery gone? What has happened to our real friends due to this?

I have been thinking this morning about the subject of penpals. However, not those online types, but good ol' fashion snail mail penpals. When I was in elementary school, I had a penpal named Mike Fisher of Zwingle, Iowa. I am always curious about whatever happend to him. I have searched online, but have had no success.

You can share little bits about one's culture, such as their language, their food, their city, their family, their hobbies, etc.

    In Closing

    If you ever took a foreign language in school, here is your chance to put it to good use. Maybe if you become fluent, you could tutor adults and/or children. Furthermore, I think exchanging gifts would be neat, such as gifts that are created from where you live.
