Perhaps you have heard the news?
Cursive is dead.
Maybe you could care less. Perhaps even loathed having to trudge through cursive lessons in grade school.
Well, I care. A lot.
I make it a point to write in cursive, in fact I actually never thought twice about it until recently when I learned through Time Magazine that youngsters are no longer taught cursive in school.
Chalk it up to the Internet, of which I have a love/hate thing going on.
The Internet has single handily killed our ability to spell (thanks a lot spell check) and has created a new (and catastrophic) language for a new generation. Soon our elders will need dictionaries just to decode Internet speak and text messaging...
So here is one last plea for the life of cursive.
Cursive is a beautiful, romantic reminder to who we are, where we have come and how charming writing REAL letters can be.
For as long as I'm around I will make it a point to keep cursive around.
Rest in peace my friend.
Alright, I will step off my soapbox. Goodnight folks.
