National Handwriting Day
Today, 23 January 2013 is National Handwriting Day. This day is meant to honor the birthday of John Hancock. John Hancock, as nearly everyone knows, possesses one of the most famous signatures on the Declaration of Independence. His signature is the original john hancock. This day is also meant to highlight the notion that hand writing nearly anything is a lost art.
Years from now, people will wonder who John Hancock was and will only be able to imagine the skill involved in hand writing anything at all.
