the teacher who couldn't read

It's an interesting story. It interested me so much I decided to link it to my blog. It's a tale of a boy Challenge who grew up thinking he was stupid and couldn't learn how to read. And throughout his life he found ways to escape his shortcoming - even to the point where he taught school for 17 years.

There are many lessons to be learned from the life of this man: things from believing we are what we believe ourselves to be, to trying to ignore the handicap we have to the point where we try and normalize life by devising ways to escape the ability to respond to the challenge our shortcoming places before us.
