“Heroes are not ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They are, in fact, extraordinary people who choose not to be ordinary.” – Kevin Brown
The world needs heroes – people who lead, love and serve at a higher level. In this episode, Brian interviews author and speaker Kevin Brown about what it really means to be a hero. Kevin describes how he spiraled out of control as a teenager, how a special mentor helped to change the course of his life and how his son Josh’s diagnosis of autism and his wife’s resultant refusal to simply accept the storyline that life had given their child have inspired and influenced him immeasurably.
