A Walk To Remember

A Walk to Remember  is a movie that we cannot do anything else but to love and remember. :') The story is simple but will surely touch the hearts of everyone. I remember this movie was released in year 2002. It was 10 years ago, yet, we all remember Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter's love story.

Here's a simple plot of the movie. Landon Carter (Shane West) is popular and heartthrob in their school. He is rich and known because of his looks and popularity while Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore) is an ordinary girl whose father is a reverend or a church minister in their place. She is definitely not one of the crowd. She's remarked by her clothes, especially her sweater, and to her being open that she's very faithful to God, since she's been seen in the movie always have a bible with her.

Till one day, Landon is facing expulsion because of a prank-thingy with his fellow schoolmate. He's punishments include participation in school activities, and one of it is the drama club where in Jamie is the lead role in the show. Landon finds
it difficult in his lines, and this is the moment where Jamie and Landon spends time together because he needs Jamie's help. Jamie agrees but with one condition, to not fall inlove with her. And Landon was like, "You hope for that." face. :)) And there, Landon falls for Jamie. And they become together. That's their love story.

Then one night, Jamie confesses that she has leukemia, and she stopped responding to medications. Landon spends his everyday with Jamie while her cancer is getting worse. :( Landon fulfills all Jamie's dreams which are:


a. Get a tattoo
         This is wonderful because the background song is Mandy Moore's hit, "It's gonna be love"

b. Be in 2 places at once  Landon is great here because he made this wish an easy one, though at first he said that this is impossible. In love, everything is. Eh?
 


c. Be friend with someone she doesn't like
          This is Jamie's # 42 in her to-do list. :) This is the first time they got okay.



d. To build a new telescope to see a comet
          We can see Landon's transformation here. Imagine a guy like him built this? Love is awesome!


e. To marry in the church where her parents got married
          Jamie believes that God gave her Landon, sent her, because he's her angel.And finally, Landon asked Jamie to get married in the place where her parents got married.

f. To witness a miracle
          Landon and Jamie had their perfect summer together. Until that sad day came, Jamie died. :(( Then at last part, Landon goes back at Jamie's house, and he is now pursuing his college. In Jamie's memory, he knows he can possibly do things. He told to Jamie's dad that he did all Jamie's wish except -- "To witness a miracle." And Jamie's dad said he did. And it was Landon. :'( Kasi nga naman, nagbago si Landon dahil ke Jamie. Nagkaron ng path yun buhay nya. He said at the end that, Jamie saves his life. :)

MY TOP 3 LOVE QUOTES


"Love is like a wind, you can't see it, but you can feel it. "

"Without suffering, there would be no compassion."

"Love is patient, love is kind. 
Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. 
Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not become angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it.
 Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with truth. 
Love bears all things, believes all things,
 hopes all things, endures all things, Love never fails."
