Dear Editor!
I (WRITE) this letter because it (SEEM) to me that far too many changes
(TAKE) place in my country these days, and, as a result, we (LOSE) our identity. I (LIVE) in a
small town but even this town (CHANGE) before my eyes. For example, town authorities (BUILD) a burger place where my favourite restaurant used to be. Our culture (BELONG)
to everybody, and I (NOT UNDERSTAND) why the town leaders (NOT DO) to
preserve it. They simply (NOT CARE).

In fact, I (THINK) of starting an action group. I (APPEAR) on a TV show on Friday
evening to make people aware of how importance this issue is. It’s time for us to start doing something before
it (GET) too late.
