If you are a Leftie, Then Left Handers Day is just for you!

Left Handers, also commonly referred to as Southpaws, are the brunt of more than their share of jokes all year long. How do I know? Yup, you guessed it! It ain't easy being a leftie. But those of us who are, would have it no other way. Lefties are proud of it.

The world is built for right handers. Examples are everywhere. For example:

Did you Know? Right handed people operate in the left side of the brain. Left handed people use the right side. Therefore, only left handed people are in their right mind.

Left Hander's certainly earned the right to have a day dedicated to them. And, August 13th is that day. So take a minute to appreciate your left handed friends and loved ones. Don't forget to send them a Left Handed Day Ecard to show your respect.

Remember today and every day: "Lefties have rights!"

    Junior is a lefty and we're proud of it. Seems like a lot of very smart people are left handed.

Back in the day, didn't the nuns used to force lefties to use their right hands? Ah, the good old days.

    My DH, being left handed, is quick to point out that the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, Therefore, he is the only one in this family in their right mind.
Thanks for the statistics!
