Old School IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL
In this day and age, everything is so fast. Fast food, fast cars, fast access, fast technology, and the list goes on. Everyone wants immediate results, responses, and expects nothing less in this generation. We all want that instant gratification. Including myself. Although, I'm thankful to be living in this time where technology is so advanced, I do miss the times where things weren't as accessible and there was a sense of waiting and longing that made the wait so much more meaningful. Without such a time of waiting, would the answers or results be as rewarding? These thoughts started crashing in on me as I recently received letters from the 1st grade class. Ms. Lee has been teaching her students the format of writing friendly letters and I was honored to be picked as their first practice. As I sat in my office reading these letters, I found myself excited to write them back and witness the faces that would receive my letters in return. When least expected, a time of reflection came knocking on my door through these handwritten letters and I was thankful for it.
GCFS, let's remember to be thankful for everything today because today will not come back. We have to learn to enjoy today's blessings for it will tell stories for tomorrow.
Your blessed VP,

From the very first sentence of your blog, I find myself agreeing with it. It is really evident that nowadays, everything around us happen in a really rapid manner. Moreover, I also like your question - without such a time of waiting, would the answers be as rewarding? It is true that great things take time. Whenever we wait, we tend to appreciate the output even more. It is really important to be thankful for everything that we have now. for our present will define our future.

I agree with you that in this day and age, everything is going so fast. That is because the technology around us keeps on evolving each day. I think that your idea of writing friendly letters is a good practice. I personally believe that letters are able to show more thoughts and appreciation. Everyone should practice sending letters once in a while.
