Can Losing A Parent As A Child Spur Success?

The BBC posted this video with the slightly strange-sounding question; Why have so many leaders lost parents when they’re young? Despite this, I think the speakers in the video express themselves, and the idea behind the BBC’s question far better. You may be surprised to see some of the world leaders who have survived the tragedy of losing a parent and used the resilience grief brought them to benefit others.
