Keeping in touch is not enough

By Sarah Police

These days, I stalk my mailbox. The first thing I do when I get home from school is check the red flag to see if the mail came today. I wait to hear from someone, anyone. Am I the only person who feels like I’ve lost contact with family? I haven’t been in contact with my godmother in years. This is the person who would take me into her home lest something happen to my parents- and I don’t even know her last name. I feel like I’m the only person who has this yearning to know the people I call “family.” I’m sure I could come up with a couple of excuses like I’m busy with school or my job, but deep down, I know that’s not a valid answer.

I’ve asked around and many of my friends are in the same predicament. So now, I’ve made a November resolution to mail a letter every week to someone in my extended family so that I can know things about the people who made my parents who they are today.
