I was briefly taught to read and write cursive in the early days of elementary school. Since then I have not really visited the area of writing since. My knowledge of what letters are what in cursive is a bit foggy but this passage has helped refresh my memory.
Reading through this passage of cursive I got through it relatively fast, like Dr. Jerz said we really do choose to remember certain things. Cursive was never that important but it was important enough for me to remember letters to read through this passage. Also, I think cursive can teach us a lot about the times in earlier years of writing when people would write in all cursive. Through studying cursive we can really dive deep into the history behind the manuscript and study how people communicated and wrote so frequently with cursive.
