Don’t You Forget About Me… 36 Years Ago Today

The Breakfast Club was formed during detention on March 24, 1984 and our lives would never be the same.

Five wildly different kids were forced together and realized they’re not so different from each-other after all. Maybe there is a lesson to be learned there.

“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 us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions.
But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain
and an athlete,
and a basket case,
a princess,
and a criminal.
Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,
the Breakfast Club
