The "2007 Write To Roland Garros"

Should I address my letter to the First World War airman?

Dear Mr. Garros,

I am sorry you died only a month before the war ended.

No, yeah it's good. I don't mind going there, I was just so keen on the ideal of getting away from my parents, but it's not convenient anymore.

how many times are you going to post this?

If you're looking for someone to write an essay for your school homework, it costs only about $30 on some online sites to have it done.

This is getting pathetic...just stop being a lazy ass and do your work.
