Thanks Rachel L Alba for your response to the question! It's good that your grand daughter has learned it. So many things have changed since our younger days. It is one of them. Have a good day!
Very interesting. My eldest sister writes calligraphy. Wow it is cool -- but alas I cannot read half of it. My wife loves my clear print block writing as she never doubts what it says. though she writes sometime strange cursive. I like this question
Thanks ME Whelan for your detailed response! I agree with your concluding lines and I appreciate your interesting views about cursive writing. Have a good day!
Thanks peachpurple for your views about cursive writing. Most of the children today find it difficult and time consuming to learn it. Appreciate your feedback on this. Thanks and good day to you!
That's a very practical opinion and I agree with you! Good that we know how to write or read it. The younger generation wouldn't bother for it since their life is so much influenced by technology.
Thanks Aime for answering the question!
Good to know John that you have a good handwriting. I always have to write slow if I want to write in good handwriting. You're right that now everyone is using technology for writing. Basic learning in cursive writing at schools will be good enough.
I agree Eric. It is rapidly becoming a "secret code" and that could present a future problem for those who wish to brainwash. I'm kind of like your wife. Sounds funny, but I find printing painful to my shoulder because of an old injury.
Because of a spat I had with one teacher I was sentenced to a typing and shorthand class -- real taboo for boys a half century ago. So I relied on my Underwood for real writing and shorthand to my girlfriends Definite secret code '-)
Funny, Eric, I refused to take shorthand because of a spat I had with my typing teacher who taught shorthand also. I learned to take dictation on the typewriter, and I could get a commercial written faster than the gal who used shorthand.
Great memories. In a rather large firm our pool voted me "dictator of the Year"
Thanks Ericdierker for responding to the question! Interesting views and I agree with you. It does something in the brain that printing doesn't. Even now when I am writing greeting cards I always enjoy writing cursive. Thanks and good day to you!
Thanks MizBejabbers for your response! You have a valuable point about original old documents and Constitution. Cursive writing is artistic no doubt. I think the younger generation must have basic learning about it--to read and write it properly.

I agree with you that cursive writing must be taught at schools so that the children can read, write and understand this . Thanks and a good day to you.
