The world needs more love letters. But, you ask, to whom should they be written? Anyone! Romantic love letters. Familial love letters. Friendship love letters. Collegiate love letters. Neighborly love letters. Ecological love letters. Thank-you love letters to cashiers, baggers, mechanics, bus drivers, postal carriers, table servers; the sky’s the limit!!!
The world needs more love letters. Forgiveness love letters. I’m sorry love letters. Totally random love letters. Sidewalk love letters sent to the persons who find them. Shouting love letters in a crowded subway station. You are amazing love letters.
Yes, it sounds crazy and a little nuts, because it is. So what? We’ve heard of random acts of kindness. Maybe we can start a trend. Taking inspiration from Paul McCartney, we can give away silly love letters. When we do, they will not be so silly after all.
Let’s get busy. There is a lot of love to share, and a lot of letters to write.
