Story of the Week

The AWM is excited to bring you stories written by our visitors in our Story of the Day exhibit, which features typewriters that visitors can interact with directly, or our newest temporary exhibit, My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today. Check back regularly for new stories, and visit the Museum to try out our regularly cleaned typewriters, see the exhibit, and possibly be featured here!

Love Letter to Ryan

Dear Ryan,

You have been in China for well over a month now. I can’t say that our time apart has been easy for me. Each morning, I wake up to thoughts of you halfway around the world. Thank GOD for modern technology. If not for our regular video chats, I’m not sure that I would survive so long without you.

Life without you is something that I never hope to get used to. I only hope that, for you, this time apart proves fruitful. May they forever remember you in China as the girl that came and went. 😛 Not that I hope you’ll never go back, but only that your visits prove temporary.

Know that, upon your return to the States, my life, and this half of the globe, will shine more brightly.

With all the love there is,


Anonymous Love Letter

Hace mucho que no estamos juntos, tengo miedo de que no tengamos la misma conexion de antes, recuerdo esos dias en los que pasabamos horas juntos y que probablemente ya no vuelvan jamas.

Aunque me siento extrano de hacer esta rencuenro contigo en otro pais, se que nuestra amista, amorio y union se guira intacta hasta el ultimo dia de mi vida, al igal que de la tuya. Esta no es una cata de despedida, si no un amigable ecordatorio de nuestra promesa que hicims un daide algun mes, de algun ano, del cual ya no me acuerdo. No te alejes, ya qe yo no lo hare, estare siempre aqui.

Desde el fondo de mim corazon,
