Ok, when my uncle was a young man, there was this girl who lived across the street from him and he was completely in love with her, but her never talked to her. But he knew in his gut that this was the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. My uncle watches this girl waiting for the right moment to approach her, the next thing he knows, he gets drafted. He thinks this is perfect. ‘I’ll come back, I’ll have a career, I’ll have served my country, I’ll be worthy of her love.’ When he gets back, she’s gone - moved away, no one knew where. He never saw that girl again. Now my uncle didn’t say much to me, but the one thing that he did say was that if there’s something in you gut that you know you feel is right, you gotta go after it, no matter what.
Max Medina's story about his uncle he tells Lorelai in his desperate attempt to woe her into dating him. Yes, I do realize this is a fictional story from a television show, but it is my favorite television show and the story still has a good message. If you feel something in your gut, in your heart, go for it. Or you just might regret it.
Story of the Founding of Stars Hollow, the town Gilmore Girls is set in.
This, boys and girls, is the story of true love. A beautiful girl from one county; a handsome boy from another. They meet and they fall in love. Separated by distance and by parents who did not approve of the union, the young couple dreamed of a day that they could be together. They wrote each other beautiful letters. Letters of longing and passion. Letters full of promises and plans for the future. Soon the separation proved too much for either one of them to bear. So, one night, cold and black with no light to guide them, they both snuck out of their homes and ran away as fast as they could. It was so dark out that they were both soon lost and it seemed as if they would never find each other. Finally, the girl dropped to her knees, tears streaming down her lovely face. 'Oh, my love. Where are you? How will I find you?' Suddenly, a band of stars appeared in the sky. These stars shone so brightly they lit up the entire countryside. The girl jumped to her feet and followed the path of the stars until finally she found herself standing right where the town gazebo is today. And there waiting for her was her one true love, who had also been led here by the blanket of friendly stars.
