2. Read the following excerpt from “Signed, Sealed, Undelivered.”

Writing letters that will never be read frees you to say anything at all. You can write to those people whose petty meanness stung you or whose significant cruelties really hurt you. It’s open season on expressing as much rage or sadness or wonder as your heart can desire and your sentences can contain. You can write yourself out of a mood or into a mood. You can even reveal your deepest feelings about a troubled relationship that haunts you. You just might find the peace you’ve been searching for. And you can do it all without having to spend the price of a stamp.
