(FOX19) - All my life I've faced the challenges left-handedness brings.
In middle school, my teacher liked to have us write sentences on a whiteboard. While my peers scribed straight, smudge-free lines, my crooked sentences left my head hanging in defeat.
How about finding the one left-handed desk in a classroom full of arm rests on the right side? It's stressful.
But then, I discovered International Left-Handers Day. That's right, a day that's designated for lefties to celebrate their "uniqueness," if you will.
According to lefthandersday.com, August 13 marks the 23rd annual International Left-Handers Day, an opportunity to increase public awareness of the "struggles left-handers are forced to deal with on a day-to-day basis."
Batters hit better when facing an opposite-hand pitcher (There are more right-handers in baseball).
We've got some good company, including Jimi Hendrix, Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Bill Gates and FOX19 Chief Meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer.
Wedding rings are worn on the left hand <3
And lastly, there is a special day just for us!
