Happy National Left Handers Day!
The date has been observed on August 13 each year since 1976, did you know that?!
My how times have changed. My sweet little sister is a lefty and my parents tried to push her to be a right hander as she was growing up but eventually laid off. "What for" I thought? Does it matter that she isn't using her right hand? She can do everything we can do, just with her left hand instead.
According to NBC News Channel 4, in September 2015 a four-year-old boy was sent home from school with a letter saying "how left-handedness is often associated with evil and the devil."
IN 2015 .... !!!!!
No school, it's actually associated with your genetics! If both parents are left handed there is a 26% chance the child will be a lefty. Nothing to do with the devil at all, BUT feel free to advert your eyes as my sister writes her school work with her left hand.
Around 11% percent of the world's population is left-handed and they have a hard enough time just cutting with right handed scissors, lets cut them some slack ... ey?
