Your Story: Iceskating With Dad

Vicki Schneider's father was a military man. He constantly tried to get his daughter to do "sporty things." But even simple activities like ice skating scared Vicki, and she says that fear disgusted her father. Many years later, Vicki was caring for her dad at home during his last days. One afternoon, Vicki decided to take a break. Inexplicably, she went to the local ice rink and learned to skate. She talks with Dick about what that simple act meant to her, as she worked to reconcile with her dad.
