Once upon a time, we were all gifted with the make-you-fall-on-the-floor-sobbing Nicholas Sparks classic known as A Walk To Remember.
Not only did it give us more of the incredibly talented Mandy Moore (and her goosebump-inducing singing voice)...
...it also brought the beauty of Shane West into our lives.
And in honor of its 15th anniversary, Mandy Moore, Shane West, and fans are sharing their favorite scenes from the film. So sit down, grab some tissues, play "Only Hope" on repeat, and join me on this emotional journey.
1. When that "character" kiss turned out to be a real AF kiss and everyone in the audience gasped:
2. When Jamie was like, "better not fall in love with me." And Landon was like, "LOL, no problem..."
3. ...AND THEN THE DAMN THING HAPPENED!!!
4. When Jamie was forced to confront her ~true feelings~:
5. When he crossed off each impossible thing on her bucket list and your heart felt like it was gonna implode:
6. When this very precious, very sweet moment happened and gave us all goosebumps:
7. This adorable, hella cute date moment:
8. When he went in for the kiss and this heart-melting little exchange happened:
9. When she was basically humiliated by bullies and Landon was like, HELL NO:
10. When Landon lost it with his dad, so then you also lost it:
11. When they finally got the chance to marry one another:
12. When Jamie's dad made him realize that their love was her miracle:

Thank you, Shane and Mandy, for this emotional masterpiece.
