A Child of Divorce, Healed by Music

STORY BY: William Hickley
YEAR: 1969

William was a late baby boomer, born in 1959, and raised in the 1960s. His parents divorced, like so many parents did at the time, and he later wrote a book for his kids about divorce called "Dear Children: A Manual for Adult Children of Divorce". He's glad that BOOM X touched on that important topic, because so many people were affected by divorce, some becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol. William went through addiction himself, but music healed him and gave him a new life in the 1970s, and it was a rebirth for him. Thanks for sharing, William!
