A Thank You Card from Japan
When I heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, I assumed that the Postcrossing postcard I sent to Naoko a few days earlier would probably never arrive. But it actually arrived in a fairly timely manner, and Naoko was able to go online and acknowledge having received the card.
Even more surprising is this thank you card that arrived from Naoko in today’s mail. I am gratified that, in times of great adversity, some people will still take the time to make kind gestures to others.
This card isn’t even as rigid as construction paper, yet it arrived in absolutely pristine, just-off-the-shelf condition.
