Left Handed People Rejoice
Happy Left Handers Day! From scissors and smudged ink to spiral-bound notebooks and impossible-to-use tin openers, the lefties’ life struggle is real. 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.” His teacher had also written to his mother that being left-handed was “unlucky.” The day itself is used for left-handers to be loud and proud about their uniqueness, as opposed to the past when some lefties were viewed with suspicion. Around 11% percent of the world’s population is left-handed.
