A SAD STORY

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)
-What extraordinary gifts he had!

There were many very famous masterpieces in Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
At the end of his story, it was a shock for my little boy while we were visiting.
He shot himself in the chest and two days later died from his wounds.

Why? Mum? Why did he end his life this way?
He is one step to be famous and rich,
nearly there.......nearly.....
and he would never know how the world could be changed because of him..............

I can see a lot of confusion and question marks on his face!
For him, it is too hard to imagine and explain!
W......h......y?

He also told me that he had read some famous musicians' stories such as Schubert (1797-1827), Mozart (1756-1791), Chopin (1810-1849), Liszt (1811-1886), Brahms (1833-1897)...........
Most of them didn't live a long life!

Again, he looked doubtful.
How sad, mum!
It is, Mike!
But it is one of the way we learn something.
Just be prepared ,be brave and be optimistic!
