A. Lot of elementary school students don’t even learn cursive writing as it’s not really needed in this digital age. Bonnie

Raymond Cardona, I never really liked cursive. What makes me sad is that some young people don't even know how to read a watch or a clock.

There was nothing wrong with any of those things.

And so we’ve gotten softer, in our bodies, our minds, our brains and our realtionship. NOTHING is better than a hand written letter. It puts a part of you into someone’s hands and heart. The loss of cursive handwriting has eliminated the evidence of personality. I could go one, but what’s the use? I’m now a stranger in a foreign land.

They were good days. I still use and do a lot of those things. And I enjoy my mother’s photo album, it brings back good memories. Kids today won’t have the pleasure of seeing their ancestors, the thousands of pictures people take will have gotten lost somehow and they also won’t be able to read old letters and documents. What a loss of family history for them!

Bring those days back, all Technology has done is make the world lazy. Thanks to Technology you barely have to use your brain. I will agree some Technology is good especially in the world of medicine but Technology has also been a hindrance.

Some of the new technology is good like having a phone with you wherever you go. But others like the whatsapp or email has robbed us of the pleasure of getting a letter from your loved ones.

Steve Tingle, whe. I started college in 1975,my parents had to spend alot of money on my HP calculator! My chemistry professor gave us a choice at finals,100 questions with the use of a calculator, or one without, unfortunately we picked the one,it was an equation that took up two full chalkboards! I ran out of time,but got partial credit for the work!

Remember my first calculator, got it for my first job, they were very new and as the youngest in the office I was in the situation that many kids of these days with their latest mobiles are. Early school we used pen and ink, (fountain pens were too expensive) typewriters were only in offices, while at college had to keep in touch with home via written letter or the old red phone boxes, still got all my cameras from box brownie up to recent bridge camera,
