A Brain, An Athlete, A Basket Case, A Princess And A Criminal

Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…

Andrew Clark: … and an athlete…

Allison Reynolds: … and a basket case…

Claire Standish: … a princess…

John Bender: … and a criminal…

Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

Can you believe The Breakfast Club is already 30 years old? It has become such a classic movie, it’s really timeless and the plot is still relatable today. I mean, who doesn’t have experience with cliques, whether in school or an office?!

The Breakfast Club is a 1985 American coming-of-age comedy-drama film written, produced, and directed by John Hughes. The storyline follows five teenagers, each a member of a different high school clique, who spend a Saturday in detention together and come to realize that they are all more than their respective stereotypes, while facing a villainous principal. Critics consider it one of the greatest high school films, as well as one of Hughes’ most memorable and recognizable works.

Today makes twelve years since my dad passed away so I’m asking that if you can, please donate $12.00 to my Over the Edge fundraising page. My dad always encouraged me to be a good person and give back when you could, and always pushed me to be a little adventurous so I do this rappel with him in mind.

Why would I want to work with the Special Olympics every year?  Because individuals with intellectual disabilities face their fears every day and Special Olympics has been there helping them do that for over 40 years. They provide year round sports training and competition programs for over 11,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities for free.  Sports is the catalyst for acceptance, inclusion, community engagement and so much more.
