Mail boxes or receptacles have been a feature of American homes and businesses for many decades. They serve an important functional purpose - to hold mail delivered daily by the United States Postal Service until their owners are able to collect. Beyond seeing them as a trusted and official conduit for communication, we regard our mailbox as our private property which is why it is a jarring experience to find it empty when we are expecting mail or, even worse, vandalized.
It is our mailbox. Our mail. Addressed to us or our family members. Unless authorized by us, no one else should take items from our mailbox. Federal law agrees. In September's Safety Speak Blog, I share tips to protect against mail theft. Check it out when you get a moment at, and share with friends and family members.
