Want more historical names?
Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, James Earl Jones…were seizure convulsing, stuttering, late talking, sensory issued, blind – deaf, uneducatable…HURT KIDS. For whom either someone stood in the gap for them, or like Michael Phelps (another hurt kid) got mad, got in a pool and started swimming.
How do I really know it’s possible? I was a hurt kid… with language processing issues, extremely slow reading ability, raised in a violent atmosphere, repeatedly called “stupid kid,” and (no wonder) severe writer’s block… So, How did I graduate college Magna Cum Laude, find my voice, and become a loving mom?? (Or to quote my God-son : “the most kick a$$ warrior momma Ever!!!!!!”
After God saved me…I got mad, I got in the spiritual, emotional, and academic pools of life, and swam my way to being a lifelong learner.
I don’t know everything… I do know, IT’S POSSIBLE!!
