Why I Wrote This Book
Growing up is not always easy...and that's okay. Sometimes we think that we need to remove all of the impediments on the path of young people. Instead, we need to help them cope with loss and adversity so that they can become okay with not being okay. Set backs and knock downs aren't permanent. They help us learn, grow and live an authentic life. With help from our friends we are able to pursue our passions and when adversity strikes we will be able to play on. Beethoven had a difficult life. From his early days as a childhood prodigy to losing his hearing he had to persevere and overcome on his way to greatness.
