I watched the new movie Dear John today and I really liked it. It came out in Redbox, and I checked it out for free in the middle of the day. (I had a promo code.) I absolutely loved it. We did skip a scene in the middle of the movie, but besides that it was very clean, funny, romantic, cute, and basically an all around chick flick.
As I was watching the movie, I stated to think about all the people that I know that are serving in other lands. It made me want to be more patriotic, and to keep in touch with people through letter writing. I think that it's hard to do anything these days without it being electronic. I find writing therapeutic. I love to write poetry, songs, stories, e-mails, in my journal, notes, and even letters. I even have had the opportunity to use a type writer a few times in the last few months...of course it was an electric one, but it made me extremely happy none the less.
I think we should all write letters. It doesn't matter if it's to a far off friend, or to a next door neighbor. Who doesn't like getting a hand written note from someone that expresses thanks, or just a note to tell them that you were thinking of them?
