The words, "we felt compelled to do something in our son's honor," caused the lump in my throat last Friday. The speaker at the Good Leadership Breakfast, Marc Miller, was sharing how in his state of grieving over the sudden loss of his son, he felt called to start a non-profit to honor the name of his child, Gunnar.
Imagine this: one day you learn your nineteen year-old son has suffered catastrophic head injuries from a skateboarding accident. And when he dies, you dedicate your life to helping young people find happiness. To me, that's a story of spreading goodness.
