In this week's episode, we learn the story of Brett Horn. Brett lost his 2-year-old son Charlie when he was crushed by a dresser that tipped over and fell on him. Brett turned his grief into something positive. He has successfully advocated for legislation requiring furniture to meet tip-over standards. He was also instrumental in creating Charlie's House, a full-scale demonstration safety house. Brett did not want other parents to experience his loss from tip-over accidents. This a great episode of overcoming grief and being persistent to reach your goals.
