There are 23 letters written that will not be sent. They are not love letters, they are not apologies. Manifestos, perhaps. Some are written on college-lined notebook pages with unclean edges, some are written in red ink. Others are written in black. Others are email messages, facebook messages, message board forums private messages. Each letter is a call. Each is an invitation, although "welcoming" isn't a word to describe the content. Can you listen? Can you respond? Each scream in and between the lines.

There are 23 letters that will not be sent out of fear that the return will be blank.
