Memories / Thoughts / or Questions You'll "Walk Away With"

Please write here what you have learned while reading and discussing the information in this book.
Leave this Example and add more: It is very important to listen to your parents because they might have good reasons why you shouldn't do something, even if you don't understand them. The example in this book is where Louis should have listened to his father and not played on his workbench. He wouldn't have hurt his eyes had he listened. (...but of course, we wouldn't have braille either then would we?)
