If you happen to be one of those non-conformists yourself, please leave a comment saying so, so I can add you to my list. I have an obsession for collecting vital information like that. I’m sure it’ll be worth money someday.
These are the left-handers in my immediate life – that I can think of, at least.
First of all, there’s God. If Jesus keeps sitting on His right hand all the time, He must be left-handed by necessity.
Next, there’s my brother Leo Gorman, my niece Christy Ford, and my granddaughter Josie Warden.
Just read Denise’s comment and learned of another family maverick I can add to my collection – my pretty niece, Josie Fortune. Note that in this photo, we even get a glimpse of that talented left hand.
Now who am I leaving out?
In case you never had a chance to memorize this, here’s a list of American presidents who were (are) left-handed.
Left-Handed U.S. Presidents
James A. Garfield
Harry S. Truman
George H. W. Bush
And here’s a few more famous lefties.
So please consider today to be Be Kind to Lefties day. Otherwise they don’t get no respect. At least smile at them sweetly and shake their hands. With your left hand, of course. Just to be tactful. Be polite. It’s not their fault they stand out from the crowd.
