A Thank You Letter from the Boston Police Department

I absolutely love receiving REAL mail. Mail that’s not advertising anything or informing me of my financial accounts. So, I got a little spark of excitement when I spotted a handwritten envelope in my mailbox at school. When I finally opened the envelope, it was something I never expected to see: a card from Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis and an official Boston Police badge.

The card contained a thank you note for the written community support that the BPD received following the bombings at the Boston Marathon and the events that followed. It is intended for my ESL students from the 2012-2013 School Year, whose publication Being Bostonian: How We Make Boston Strong was written for and mailed to the Boston Police shortly after April vacation last spring.

My husband kindly and beautifully framed the card, letter, and badge, and I will present it to my students tomorrow. I am so proud of them, and I know they will be excited that their publication was recognized.
