Jessica Myles Henkin and Laura Wexler share stories of people trying their best to take care of others.

Caroline Tufts has a ritual she does every night before she goes to her job as a forensic nurse. Jim Karantonis is a psychiatric technician; it’s the Vietnam War, and his charges decide to have a game of baseball. Cheryl Conners is a nurse, and recalls a patient whose story can’t quite be explained by modern medicine.

The song at the end of this episode is “More Fool Me” by Genesis.
