Stories of Hope: The Case of Confused Labels

Perhaps you have heard the story, but I want to give it a different slant with a new and (I hope) inspiring story. When Thomas Edison was a boy, his teacher sent his mom a letter informing her that since her son was addled (mentally retarded), there was no further need of him attending school. When young Thomas queried his mother about the letter, she replied that the teacher wrote that since her son was a genius; it was beyond their capacity to teach Thomas. Years later as he was sorting through his deceased mother’s belongings, the world- renowned inventor found that letter.
