Life is full of trials and adversity, and such trials and adversity often pose a challenge for a person at times when that person least expects it. Byron Smith began experiencing some of life's trials and adversity prior to his high school graduation, which was supposed to be a time a triumph. As a teenager, he found himself embattled against adults who were supposed to be mentors and role models in his life. Little did Byron know that the unjust encounter was the first of several encounters to come. Early on, Byron responded angrily to adversity but then he began to find solace in an unlikely source, music. He used music to help himself cope and navigate through trying times. After completing college, Byron embraced the concept of dealing with adversity with intelligence, tact, and diplomacy. In his story he details how he prescribes certain songs for himself when he needs comforting. He also shares his observations of how music has a different effect on today's youth because they are not listening to prescription music but are bombarding their ears and brain cells with poisonous music that desensitizes them and diminishes their desire to use intelligence, tact, and diplomacy to battle adversity.
