I’m so glad I gave Enel those long sleeves. Best decision I ever made.

Letter to an Unknown Soldier: A Sampling of the Letters

Over the last month, Letter to an Unknown Soldier has been gathering submissions from the public to create a digital war memorial for WWI. We asked people to write the letter the statue in Paddington Station is reading.

The response was extraordinary! Over 21000 letters were sent—from across religions, across social classes, and across the world. 

Read a sampling of them here.

Writing the Soldier's Letter

letter1418:

If you have written your letter to the Unknown Soldier you will know, writing a letter to the soldier is not easy. My favourite thing about the Letter to an Unknown Soldier project is how people have to stop and think.

The best letters are those that provoke thoughts. A letter that I read on…

Great editorial from a friend.
