National U.S. Postage Stamp Day

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

Although National U.S. Postage Stamp Day is not an official holiday, it serves as a reminder that the Postal Service is an important part of our lives and that the work done by it's employees on a daily basis cannot be underestimated.

The U.S. postal service is a full time operation that runs 24 hour a day, 7 days a week and it allows people to send and receive mail with relative ease.

Money made from the sale of postage stamps help pay employee salaries, for the transportation of mail, and for the facilities used to process it. Without postage stamps, most mail would not make it to it's intended destination in a timely manner or, in some cases, not at all.

Emails, fax machines, text messaging, and other forms of sending messages and communicating over the internet has made sending letters by postal mail less appealing, yet it is still a necessity. Although people don't write and send letters the way they did in the past, millions of letters, packages, advertisements, and important documents are still sent and received by postal service mail every day.

Although the cost of a single postage stamp has increased over the years, it is still, by far, the cheapest way to send a letter. By what other means can you send a letter from Boston to Honolulu for under a dollar and have it arrive within two or three days of after it is put in a mail box or dropped off at a post office counter?

National U.S. Postage Stamp Day recognizes the great work that the U. S. Postal Service does for millions of American citizens, not just in the continental U.S.A., but it serves a worldwide purpose, especially for citizens abroad, for government business, and for the military and military personnel.

Postage stamps help keep the world moving and makes it easy for people to stay in touch. Although many individuals and businesses use electronic means to send invoices, pay bills, and to stay in touch, postage stamps are still an economical way to communicate with those to whom you have a need to reach out and touch.

The postage stamp is a powerful tool and it should be recognized and celebrated as one of the great ideals of human thought and intelligence.
