Thank you Mr. Hughes

As with the passing of Mr. MJ last month in an uproar of sadness, the passing of John Hughes, director of the iconic films The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, has brought upon the end of an era. Unlike MJ, Hughes enlightened the world with his vision of the original teen misfits confused in the perplexities of what it means to be a young adult in the 1980's, the 90's, and even today.

quote from The Breakfast Club:

"Dear Mr. Vernon: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. And what we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us."

Thank you for your inspiration Mr. John Hughes...I will never forget your work and your inspiration.

Mommy Bridget
