The Letter

Writing 101 Assignment: You read it a letter. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter. Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.


The social worker brought a letter. Their family finally made contact. 

Should I burn it?

  1. My heart skipped a beat. First because as a Social Worker, I know how it feels to even deliver those letters and second, it caused a bout of instant anxiety. Great piece. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Short and precise… Would I burn it… Not sure… I might keep it but hide it… And then decide in a couple of years…
