Can E-mail replace Letters?
September 20, 2006
I read this news report in Channel News Asia some weeks ago and I thought it would be interesting to get everyone’s answers and views.
Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves, who play lovers united through letters but divided by time in “The Lake House,” said that e-mail could never replace the passion of handwritten correspondence.
“I love letters. I don’t think we should ever lose the art of sending a letter. It might be time-consuming but the person who receives it will always have it,” Bullock told a news conference in Tokyo.
A letter “doesn’t take batteries, you know,” Reeves said.
He said letters showed the personality of the senders.
“You can see their handwriting, you can hear their voice, smell their scent, it’s part of them. It’s fantastic,” he said.
