I grew up without a T.V. so when I did watch anything it was on a neighbors T.V. There were two shows I was always happy to catch and as old fashioned as it may be, it was The Waltons, and Grizzly Adams.
Anyway, I purchased the DVD's for The Waltons and it really makes me think about life, family, loyalty, and other things about family life. One thing that really stands out to me is that even though they were dirt poor, they were a family that stuck together through thick and thin, they looked out for each other, and they took care of one another even if it meant sacrifice for them.
I know times change and things progress, but it's too bad that those things seem to have changed in general. I know there are exceptions to my observation, but it's a shame that it doesn't seem to be the norm any longer.
