"Everything you perceive as bad is God preparing you for some task."

That's according to Byron Pitts, a CBS News correspondent and the subject of this Howard Kurtz column.

Pitts' story is fascinating. He was functionally illiterate at 12, but through hard work and lots of loving encouragement from his mother, Pitts overcame his disabilities to excel in a field he loves. Read Kurtz's column for the details.
