This note was found on the ground outside of a building close to the heart of downtown Kansas City. I wonder if the receiver of this note ever got it, and if they did, why they weren’t able to hold onto it. Either way, I hope this Katie keeps on smiling.

This find so touched me. I was kind of flooded with a mix of memories and emotions when I realized what I was holding. First off, I was happy to discover that kids still pass notes. With all the technology advancements and changes in just the last 15 to 20 years, I’d imagined that there was nothing that still connected the school kid generations. As I picked this note up, I was transported back in time to when I was a kid in school, feeling immediately connected to these two young souls. I send out silent prayers to them in hopes that everyone is well and happy.

I found this note in a little wooden box I bought at a flea market. It broke my heart because it looks like Katherine was crying while she wrote this– there are little tear stains on the paper. It also looks like this letter was read many, many times. The paper is torn like a map you fold and unfold too many times.
