[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
It was one spring day during the war that our mother came back to us, and with her arrival it seemed that everything began to look brighter. In Europe and North Africa the Allied forces were gaining strength, giving new hope to those of us on the home front. There were dark days still ahead, but for now it was peaceful on the mountain and my family rejoiced in being together again.
