Dear Myra.
Hello Myra, how are things with you? I do hope you are always fine. I am not okay, actually. I’ve lost everything, my electronic devices, my Blackberry, even friends. I wish you could be here with me.
I've lost everything because my father was fired from his office. You may not believe it, but it is true. His company was bankrupt and closed. From then on, we have to live carefully. My father had to sell our property before he can find a new job. Unfortunately, he cannot get one up to now.
Myra, something that makes me feel worse is my friends. They used to come to me and play together. They used to ride my bike, play CDs, even use my handphone. But now, when my family becomes poor,
no one comes to me. They may have foraottt n me. Will you forget me too. Myra?
