Dear James, In today’s newspaper, I read about the recent events in your town and I am writing to extend my deepest condolences.
It broke my heart to see all those pictures of those whose homes have been destroyed in the tragic hurricane. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a little girl crying on the roof of her house asking for help. I am really worried about you and your family, and all your friends there. I am crossing my fingers for you now in hopes that you are all safe and sound.
I can only imagine how difficult this time must be for you, and I want to extend to you my unwavering support. Our government and many nongovernmental organizations are initiating various campaigns to urge people to donate money and necessary things to send to America. I donated all my allowance that I have been saving for years.
I feel extremely sorry for this tragedy, and I will be looking forward to hearing from you. Please pass my concern on to your parents.
