both of my parents were born in the appalachian mountains – my mom in pennsylvania, and my dad in eastern kentucky, which is the focus of the recent 20/20 documentary “children of the mountains.” if you want to get a glimpse of a part of our country that most don’t seem to know exists, go to, click the “free episodes” link at the top, then make your way to 20/20 and the “children of the mountains” episode. diane sawyer spent two years following families in the mountains and hollers of eastern kentucky, and it will open your eyes a bit. it opened mine.

    Amy: I watched the program and was so sad to think that this exists in our country. Grampa was born in Penn. in appalachian country. We haven’t been back for years, but yes, this is exactly how it looks. What can we do to help?
