About this Episode

William Joyce may be Shreveport, Louisiana's most celebrated storyteller. He's won an Academy Award, several Emmys and countless other honors during his career as an author, illustrator and filmmaker. The All Y'all team has enjoyed a long friendship with Bill; but, until he shared this story, we'd never heard the unbelievable story of how his mother and father met and what witnessing their love meant to Bill as a boy.

It is a powerfully personal reflection on the relationship between love and courage.

"Love for another person can make you so much stronger than you ever thought that you could be," Bill says in the story. Amen to that.
