Today’s COVID Card recognizes US Route 1, also known as the Old Boston Postal Road. in 1673, Governor Francis Lovelace of New York set up a monthly post between New York and Boston. The post riders used a trail that has become what we now know as US Route 1.
In case you don’t know, COVID Cards are original drawings that get mailed to people I know. I have mailed one each day (Sunday’s card goes out on Monday) for the past 2 weeks. Each card (so far) has had some reference to the US Postal Service. That service, which was instrumental in building our democracy/republic, is in jeopardy and needs our help. Do you really want to have to use UPS or FedEx to send your holiday cards, birthday cards, vacation postcards, graduation announcements, etc? If not, pay attention and act. The simple act of writing and mailing a postcard can help. But I can’t do it alone.
