Meaningful holidays

    The holiday season is a time to celebrate family and love – but for Dan Gottlieb, host of WHYY’s Voices in the Family – it marks the anniversary of a personal loss.

    Thirty years ago yesterday, a tire flew off a truck on the highway, and crashed through his windshield. He was paralyzed from the neck down as a result.

    WHYY’s Behavioral Health reporter Maiken Scott spoke with Gottlieb about what this time of year has come to mean to him.
