Happy Lefthanders Day

August 13 is designated International Lefthanders Day by Lefthanders International. It was first observed 13 August 1976. As its name suggests, it is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It celebrates their uniqueness and difference, who are from seven to ten percent of the world's population.

If you are left-hander join me to celebrate this day. We are not alone; do you know all these celebrities are also left-handers? Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth, Prince William, Leonardo da Vinci, Ludwig van Beethoven, Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Bill Gate, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, 王力宏, 倪匡 and many more.

If you are the dominating right-hander, take a minute to appreciate your left-handed friends and loved ones.
