Ordinary People Inspired to Become Extraordinary Leaders:The Kite Network

Sometimes we are awed by the power of ordinary people who have experienced something so powerful, so profound, that we think that they might never recover, to step up and use that personal experience to bring light and love into the world.  Such is the story of Doug and Julie Stotlar and Jeff and Lisa Pitts, ordinary people who each experienced perhaps the most tragic loss anyone can imagine-that of a young child,  and who went on use what they had learned to help others.

Together, they founded The Kite Network, a peer support network providing free services to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Not a  counseling or therapy center, the Kite Network simply provides caring, support and a listening ear from  peer counselors who understand at a very deep level because they too have  had a similar grief journey.

Join me tonight as I  interview two of the co-founders, Julie Stotlar and Lisa Pitts, about. their individual journey’s. Listen in as they share how they each took a tragic loss, which could easily have crushed the spirit of many, and turned it into their inspiration to step up and become extraordinary leaders, and  to provide support  and comfort to others through this unique organization.

Do you know someone who has turned tragedy into triumph? Has take something difficult as an inspiration to be more? Is that someone you?
