Many people have expressed their grief over the loss of the show because they would continue to watch long after the passing of such loved ones because it made them feel close to them to continue watching. How many of you purchased the ATWT Tribute Magazine? If you did then you must remember reading the article where Eileen Fulton tells about the lady who approached her with the story of how her mother was laying on her death bed asking the priest, “How is Lisa?”
There are plenty of people in high places who say soap operas are not family oriented, but I think there are plenty personal testimonies that prove these higher ups wrong! I certainly don’t believe a talk show is more family oriented than our beloved ATWT.
In many families it became like a family tradition passed down from grandmother to mother to daughter (sons too, don’t think I’m leaving men out of this because plenty of men watch too!)
With that being said I would like to ask everyone to share their story. What does ATWT mean to you and your family if you grew up watching with them? Do you think the show represents family oriented programming?
