Left Handed, Disadvantaged?
By Beth Beutler
1 "I wish I hadn't been born left-handed," Jeremy complained to his sister Jessica.
3 "So many of my friends play sports with their right hand," Jeremy answered. "I have to do everything the opposite way. I pitch lefty, I hit lefty, and I even bowl lefty."
4 "What's wrong with that?" Jessica asked.
5 "I wish I could play as well as everyone else. Being left-handed keeps me from doing as well."
6 Jessica looked at her brother skeptically. She had seen him play sports like baseball, and he had always done just as well as anyone else. In fact, he was a great pitcher. She wondered if something else was wrong.
7 "Is something the matter?" Jessica asked.
8 "Why do you ask?"
9 "I've just never heard you complain about not doing well in sports. I've watched you. You are great!"
