About Episode

Hosted by: Cynthia Blomquist Gustavson

When you need help, you need to rely on others. People of Tulsa are very good at helping others, but so are Canada geese. Cynthia reads a poem about them which features a gosling that cannot fly. She also reflects on personal, private experience after her husband's accident when he could not move, but had all the love and support. We cannot live alone.

๐Ÿ™๏ธ 00:15 There is always somebody to help you in Tulsa.

๐Ÿฆ 01:06 Canada geese's community spirit is strong.

๐Ÿช 01:53 Poem: "Migration"

๐Ÿ’ž 04:15 The poem is based on a true story - wild geese sacrifice for the one who is not as strong.

โ™ฟ 04:55 Mr. Gustavson, who is in a wheelchair, is often helped by others, too.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ 05:36 "And that's what I wish for you, that you have a community."

โ›‘๏ธ 05:59 "We need one another. We need to care for one another."
