With all the major issues facing us daily, it is often asked what can one person do. After reading the front page article of Nov. 19  about the demise of Santa letters, I know what Harry the Mailman is doing and will continue to do.
For 15 years I have been the mailman for most of the Bird Streets. While every piece of mail has always received the care and attention that the Postal Service requires, I take great pride in making sure that the Santa letters from my young customers get that extra special personal attention.
I can still remember the first Santa letter that I picked up, it was from Jessica in the Bird Streets. I put much personal effort in that letter getting to the North Pole destination and the response finding its way back to that anxious young girl.
Every Christmas season over the past 15 years this process has been repeated many, many times.
I want all my young friends to know they can be sure that Harry the Mailman will continue to personally see that their Santa letters reach the intended destination.
And they can also be sure that if Santa has the time during his busiest weeks of the year to write to them. Harry the Mailman will bring that treasured response to their mailbox. To some grown ups this might seem a bit trivial. But to my young friends, those letters might be their only way to let Santa know they will have cookies for him and something special for the reindeer.
I still have my letter that my mailman delivered to me from Santa when I was young.
So, my young friends, you can sleep easy knowing that as long as Harry the Mailman is working the Bird Streets, your letters will make their way to Santa.
