A little boy came home from school one day, and his mother told him she’d received a letter from his school’s principal. She read the letter aloud for the boy, and this is what it said,
“Ma’am, your son is absolutely brilliant. We have no resources at this school to teach somebody who is obviously a genius. We believe you should take him out of school and educate him in a way that will suit his talent.”
The boy grew up to become Thomas Edison, the great inventor who created the light bulb, the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a plethora of other great inventions. After his mother died, Edison was going through her papers and found that old letter from the principal. This is…
