Stop the pain

My husband has dyslexia. He had to repeat his first and second grades. He was looked down on for being 'stupid, retarded', etc. He has never been able to overcome the stigma and pain from his school days. On his test papers he would turn the paper over and draw a picture on the back. The teachers would actually give him a passing grade for the picture. This instead of trying to help him. Of course this was some 45 years ago, but still. And he is SMART! He can tell you anything about history, WWII, and more. He can run circles around me with a lot of things, and I was considered 'above average' in school. It hurts to see the pain in his eyes when someone dismisses his ideas or thoughts. And I am ashamed to say that I am guilty of losing patience with him at times. We need to educate those who don't see why it is a big deal to think before they speak. We're the only ones who see and know. It's up to us.
