Dear Mom and Dad,

I just want to let you know that I will be going away for a while. I am not sure where I am going, or when I will be home. I just really need to get away from Lancaster for awhile. I will keep in touch by mail. I am sorry but I feel like I just need to do this for myself. It has nothing to do with you guys and I want you to know that I love you. I will miss you all very much. Take care.

Love, Christian
