The Left of Us

Updated on September 14, 2011

The "Left" of Us

South paw, wrong handed or lefty, I've been called all these names just because I'm a left handed person living in a right handed world. But what people don't understand is that I'm ok with who I am. You see I believe that being left handed makes me not only different but smarter. Because our society is centered around those individuals who are "right handed," left handed people like myself have to make adjustments to compensate for our uniqueness . We have to be quick, think on our feet and adapt to a world that's of the belief that "right is better. If you look closely at history, you will find that some of the brightest people that ever walked on this planet were in fact left handed. Albert Einstein is a perfect example of this. Lets not forget the number of presidents including the current president who wear the badge of south paw with honor. I love the challenge that comes with being different and not going with the flow. It allows for more individual freedom. Yes, we of the left handed persuasion are different. Some people say we write funny with our hands turned upside down. Hey, that may look funny but what we write usually is just as dynamic in its form. Remember e=mc2? Yes we may be different, but everyday we rise to the challenge of a right handed world and beat the odds. So left handed people of the world unite and stand proud. You to are beautiful.
