    1. The Network needs to provide an update to these shows. As a viewer, sympathizer, you become invested if these people’s situation changes for the better.
      Our America with Lisa Ling, ‘The Lost American Dream’ is one that I’m greatly interested in viewing. I have prayed for Annette, Tink, Teresa , Bob, and others who are struggling.

      • Yes, I want to know as well. All of the stories touched me, but for some reason Bob’s story really got to me. I wish there was an update.
