Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] By the spring of 1945 there were no young men left on Waltons Mountain, though with the Allied forces close to victory in Europe, hope grew that soon they'd be returning home. The cost of defending our freedoms ran high, and in our patriotic fervor we sometimes failed to realise that those freedoms were too often not evenly distributed.

One Good Episode
13 June 2016 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

When this episode aired many years ago, It stood out to me. I saw how sometimes friendship transcends everything, and the racism and bigotry that exist in the world. I grew up in a time when race was a big issue, and how blacks were treated. In the end John goes all the way to President Roosevelt to secure a pardon for Harley. Then the sadness at the end, when the President dies, and it's revealed that granting Harley's pardon was the very last act he carried out. Then the whole family travels to Charlottesville to see the presidential funeral train as it passes through on its way to Washington D.C. This shows the true effect Roosevelt's death had on the country. This two part episode will forever be one of my favorite episodes.
