A Generation Xer's caregiving journey

Do you still use cursive writing?

Someone is very upset that cursive writing is some state curriculums are gone in the way of history.  ABC News recently had a story, The End of Cursive.

According to Gram, learning cursive writing is one of the core milestones of elementary school education. She still takes great pride in her writing. While I was in college, she sent a package every so often and I recognize her handwriting a mile away. So when she heard this , she was upset. “Why would they want to cut that out!!?” she exclaimed.

Despite being in the wired world 80% of the time, I think there are still times to use cursive writing other than signing a document. For instance, I still need to write thank you cards for someone’s milestone birthday.

Do you still use cursive writing? If so when?
