[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
On Waltons Mountain, as our parents had before us, we grew up taking for granted the traditions that shaped our lives. When my sister, Mary Ellen, took a stand against a solemn mountain custom, it was a rebellion that rattled the complacency of generations. She was seventeen, but the custom was older than even my grandmother could remember.
