All of your e-Buddies questions answered here!

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "The only way to have a friend is to be one." In the spirit of those inspiring words, Ask Emerson is a feature designed to help you be the best friend you can be. Each month, we will select a question or two for responses. Send your questions to


Dear Emerson,

My teacher told me that next year in school, we won't be able to e-mail from class anymore because they are getting rid of the Internet. Right now I'm visiting my grandma for the summer, and she has a computer. I don't have one at home, so how am I supposed to keep in touch with my e-Buddy if I can't do it at school? I love my e-Buddy and don't want to lose touch. I hope you have the answer!

Your friend,
Sad in Santa Fe


Dear Sad in Santa Fe,

Cheer up! There are many ways that you can still be in contact with your e-Buddy. For starters, visit your local library. Libraries almost always have Internet access and will let you write to your buddy from there. See if any of your friends with a computer at home would let you come over and write to your buddy once a week. Who knows, they might have an e-Buddy as well and the two of you can make it a fun weekly get together. If you are a part of the Best Buddies chapter, talk to your peer buddy. They can help you find a way as well. Good luck!

Signing off,
