Former vice president of the United States and governor of the state of New York, Nelson Rockefeller, recalled his feelings about growing up with dyslexia:
I was dyslexic... and I still have a hard time reading today. I remember vividly the pain and mortification I felt as a boy of 8 when I was assigned to read a short passage of scripture at a community vesper service and did a thoroughly miserable job of it. I know what a dyslexic child goes through... the frustration of not being able to do what other children can do easily, the humiliation of being thought not too bright when such is not the case at all.
