11-year-old writes thank you letter to mail carrier and gets dozens back

An 11-year-old girl wrote a letter to her local mail carrier thanking him for his service during the coronavirus pandemic and as a result she received dozens back. Emerson Weber from South Dakota has been known for years by her loved ones for writing and sending thoughtful letters decorated with her own designs.

"I love being able to decorate the envelopes. It really shows my creative spirit," Emerson told "Good Morning America." "Writing letters you can share so much about your self, it's like being there in person, and, I love receiving them, because you know that someone took the time in their day to write back to you."

With that she wrote to Doug, her local mail carrier, thanking him for taking her letters and delivering them.

"The reason you are very important in my life is because I don't have a phone so how else am I supposed to stay in touch with my friends? You make it possible!" she wrote in the letter.

Doug then shared the letter and soon Emerson received dozens back from USPS workers telling her thank you for saying thank you.
