    Without hands how would we manage to do the things that we often take for granted.
    • Mothers cradle their children with their arms
    • No pot can be stirred without our hands
    • We would not be able to wear a watch or even carry a handbag
    • Hands hold the broom and mop when we clean our house.
    • We clap with our hands to show appreciation.
    • Without hands I would not be able to type this.
    Anyone interested in adding to this list.

    -Without hands a blind person wouldn't be able to read braille. A deaf person couldn't speak through sign language.

    -Slam dunks at a basketball court wouldn't exist.

    -You need hands to do CPR.

    -No finger to wear a wedding ring.

    -Putting on make up would be difficult.

    -No more braiding and doing our hair.

    Basically you're right but then there's this. I wouldn't have believed this myself until I had a 3 day rehab clinical in my medic class.
