I have a new found respect for J.J. Abrams.

So this past week, J.J. Abrams went out of his way, and did something amazing. He granted the last wish of a dying man. His last wish was for a screening "Star Trek Into Darkness". The man was terminally ill with cancer, and a long time Star Trek fan.

The fan was 42 year old Daniel Craft. A friend of his posted on both Twitter and Reddit that all his friend wanted to see was the New Star Trek movie, or at least the trailer. Somehow this information made it to Director J.J. Abrams. Abrams responded privately. He and a representative for Paramount Pictures (the studio behind Star Trek) took a DVD of an early cut of the film to Daniel's home, and provided him with a special screening.

Unfortunately Mr. Craft passed away 2 days later, but it's awesome to know that there are people out there that still care, that will go out of their way to make another human being happy.

and for that, I thank you Mr. Abrams. You have my respect. You truly are made of awesome, and I will make sure to watch Star Trek 2, when it comes out next may!
