The Daily Gazette featured an interesting article last week about two local women who grew up during WWII and had contact with girls in England during the war. After years of communicating via letter, both women ended up visiting their new friends in England, much like Juliet ends up visiting her new friends on Guernsey.
When I was in school, I remember my class writing letters to kids in far-off places, hoping that we would find pen pals of our own. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the outcome of these letters, and with the advent of email and other, faster means of communication, the letter-writing tradition is certainly fading.
Does anyone else remember having a pen pal growing up? (Or, like Juliet, as an adult?) Did you ever get to meet your pen pal?
