Email killed the love letter for most of us. It did this without becoming a replacement. Now, we are stuck. We do not write love letters because we can use email. We do not use email for love letters because it is not an intimate approach. We’re stuck. It’s a shame because love letters allow us the opportunities to express thoughts and feelings that we might, otherwise, keep secret. I am all for bringing back the love letter. R. Kelly’s Love Letter (2010) keeps hope alive.
