S.E. Hinton...Back In The Day.
I used to have such a crush on her...I've never seen a pic of her,that I can remember?
Meh,I was going to look her up,and decided not to. I remember the spirit of the gal.
Is she hawt? (was she hawt?)
"I asked the nurse to give you this book,
so you could finish it.
"It was worth saving those kids because
their lives are worth more than mine.
"They have more to live for.
Tell Dally I think it's worth it.
"I'm gonna miss you guys.
"I've been thinking about it, and that poem,
that guy that wrote it.
"He meant you're gold when you're a kid,
"When you're a kid everything's new.
"Like the way you dig sunsets, that's gold.
"Keep it that way. It's a good way to be.
"I want you to ask Dally to look at one.
I don't think he's ever seen a sunset.
"There's still lots of good in the world.
"Tell Dally, I don't think he knows.
"Your buddy, Johnny."
