Someday I’ll tell the rest of the story about why I’m posting the following link. But for right now, let me just recommend you read it.
I was never particularly close to John Hughes movies — though I did like The Breakfast Club — but that’s not the point of this story. It’s a story about John Hughes as a person, and the difference it made in one girl’s life.
After I read it — and almost started crying myself — I noticed it has a whooping 1151 comments.
Read it and you’ll know why.
