Dyslexia Made Henry Winkler Feel 'Stupid' For Years. Now, He's A Best-Selling Author

"And so at 31, I found out I wasn't stupid, that I wasn't lazy ? that I had something with a name." ]

Yeah, it's one of those ?Look at the whacky Europeans!? articles in a Christian outlet, but the reasoning is neither new nor wrong.
