Shay D. Potter

PLEASE START WITH EPISODE ONE FIRST. THIS IS THE FIFTH EPISODE OF THE SERIES AND A CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS EPISODE.

Shay interviews her father and recounts the time he came to stay with her in Augusta. It is a continuation of the conversation that began in the fourth episode of Crack this ShXt Open!, ‘Rhythm & Blues, Pt. 1.’

Shay's father visits her home in Georgia. Over the next few weeks, his health declines and he ends up in the hospital. It was a wake-up call for both of them. Would they both grow from the experience? Hear more.

Cast: Shay Potter, Merty Potter

Key Themes:

  • Family is a powerful force.
  • Time will not heal all wounds, but effort can.
  • Understanding is the result of a shared experience.
  • Reconciliation requires a willingness to change.
  • True acceptance comes from within.


Key Quotes:

5:49 — “This long trek to Augusta represented so many things. Most importantly, it indicated his need to wind the clock back, or at least stop it momentarily like he was trying to reach back to grab that something he suddenly remembered was there.”

10:16 — “This was the first time I saw another side of my dad. He looked unsure, lost, frightened. We were changing roles right before my eyes.”

10:57 — “I never asked, nor wanted this level of responsibility, but I feared losing my father even more.”

12:25 — “Sometimes, we move too fast in life and overlook the simpler things of the values that are already in our world. Until it begins to fade away, I am my dad’s Georgia and he is mine. Augusta changed both of us.”

13:42 — “I think every kid wants that emotional connection, whether they share the same gender or not. You just want to have that, right? And that’s why I’m so appreciative that we muscled through this and we now have it.”

15:04 — “I’ll go the extra mile. I want you to say when you needed it, I was there. I love you more than anything else in the world.”- Shay’s father
