A short letter

Though I have long been a fan of e-mail, I still enjoying receiving letters in the post.  There's something particularly nice about finding a real letter in the stack of bills, catalogs and junk.

Yesterday I received a letter from a former student who is training for the Marine Corps.  It was a short letter written last Sunday, but with a good explanation for its brevity:
Father, sorry this isn't a long letter but I'm going to church.
If only all short letters had such a reason behind them.
