Ian Hockley on Lessons of Loss from Sandy Hook and Building Communities of Heromakers

Heromakers Podcast

Apr 20 2021 • 46 mins

In this episode of the Heromakers Podcast, we talk with Ian Hockey, co-founder and executive director of Dylan's Wings of Change and the Wingman program. In December 2012, Ian's life changed forever when he lost his son, Dylan, in the Sandy Hook shooting. Here, Ian shares about those early moments, the butterfly effect, and why grief is powerful but love more so. Grief, Ian says, is love with nowhere to go.

In this episode, we  dive into some of the hero traits like authenticity, courage, and empathy, and talk about the incredible initiative Ian is leading to empower a generation and communities to embrace change and love and goodness for the sake of others.

We invite you to support what Ian and his team are doing and to keep fighting for empathy and courage as we navigate these difficult times we are in.
