Can you believe that cursive writing is no longer being taught in our schools? That truly saddens me. I mean REALLY saddens me.
I recently asked the granddaughter of a co-worker if she could write her name in long hand (she's 10) She looked at me puzzzled and replied,
"You mean cursive? No, they don't teach that."
How in the world can something as unique as a signature become obsolete? How are legislative bills going to be signed into being? Printed name??? GAWWWW! This scares the hell out of me!
What if everyone's printing looks alike?
Future generations will miss the beauty of a signature. It's something that belongs to you...your signature becomes your identity. So love letters (which I suppose are also a thing of the past) will be printed? How totally unromantic and absurd!
And how in the world do you sign a check? They stipulation "Signature Required" has no validity; unless of course we all resort to the ever present God of technology, 'electronic signature'
And how will celebrities and sports legends sign autographs and sports memorabilia???? By printing their names?????? YIKES! #scary and #sad
Call me old fashioned, but I'm just dumbfounded and my heart is heavy as I realize that the Boomers and GenX are probably the last of the mohicans who have learned the art of cursive writing....
If you were to get a 'signed' book from an author, which would you prefer???
Just some food for thought ;)
