COVID Card #345

April 15, 2021 | 0 comments

Years ago, I worked for an education organization. My boss had been a teacher, a principal, and a superintendent. One day, some random story about a kid who brought a gun to school caused me to say something like, “Kids have changed.” My boss replied, “No, Tina. Kids haven’t changed. We have.”

E. Dewey Albinson may be an example of this reality. He was twelve years old in 1910 when boys who stole his bike shot him in the leg. It’s easy to feel as though gun violence among children is new. When children steal and it leads to violence, adults have failed them. Oops. Tangent.

Fortunately, Albinson survived the assault. He made one post office muralist: Marquette Exploring Shores of Lake Superior (Marquette, Michigan).

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
