God is SO GOOD; although I have ADD.

This list has been accumulated from various sources. The biggest contributor to this list is the ADD library, that Eileen Bailey facilitates. No two lists are alike, among lists of Famous ADD-ers.

During their time, most people thought any idea of man flying was wrong. But Wilbur and Orville proved that they were Wright. Wilbur and Orville first had to develop a completely new science that today is called aerodynamics -- and they built the first wind tunnel.

Among the politicians listed, there are both Democrats and Republicans. Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy are political opposites.

Prince Charles has had royal expectations that are unfriendly to ADD. At age 5, he showed evidences of confusion, and that nearly coincided with his mother being crowned the queen. His parents were away for long periods to perform royal obligations, while he was raised by nannies. His father, Prince Phillip, sent him to military academies (again royal expectation) and that was a straightjacket to an ADD'er. The situation most news media mentioned was that he was married to Diana, while he was in love with Camilla. News media published photos of Diana and Charles looking in opposite directions. Although Diana battled depression, she was more focused than Charles.

Benjamin Franklin flew a kite in a thunderstorm to experiment with electricity. He was a risk taker, inventive, and unique viewer. Miraculously, Ben wasn't killed. That was before homes had electricity.

Roger Tory Peterson had agreed to give a speech to a naturalists' gathering, in New York City. He took a commuter train from his Connecticut suburb, and then he was unable to recall the purpose of his trek into New York City. He never arrived at the naturalists' gathering.

Winston Churchill once said, "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."
