Some people can teach us better than others how to make a difference in our lives, and Peter Dankelson is one of them. Yet, in the beginning, his circumstances would not have allowed him to even imagine this possibility. He was born prematurely and was diagnosed with Goldenhar syndrome. He had to undergo surgery on numerous occasions throughout his life and cope with being different, but this has not discouraged him at all. Thanks to music and his guitar, Peter proves you can stay positive and become a source of inspiration for many people. Find out all the details of his incredible life in his book How I Learned to Rock My Life: The Peter Dankelson Story, which he wrote in conjunction with his mother, Dede Dankelson.
How I Learned to Rock My Life is the perfect title for the story of Peter Dankelson. This book tells of a life that could have been very different, but which, thanks to the spirit of our hero, can and will inspire people to self-acceptance. Reading about all the surgery that Peter underwent since he was a baby and seeing the photographs makes us realize everything he had to endure before becoming the person he is now. He also reveals that the secret is to believe that even unfavorable conditions can bring about something good. I think that Peter, his mother Dede, and the rest of his family can be proud of what they have shown to the world. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to discover the life of the extraordinary Peter Dankelson, especially if they are looking for a model of perseverance.
