Today I thought about dactyloscopy–the art of fingerprinting. Penn State requires fingerprinting as part of our clearances to work with children, and since I’m volunteering at the local high school for a writing conference, I traveled for fingerprinting today.
It’s truly amazing if you think about it. I learn that your fingerprints are more unique than your DNA. No two people ever, in the history of the world, have been found to contain the same fingerprints.
There’s truly no one else like you! It’s amazing to think about. You leave your own mark on the world, literally.
