I think "Anonymous" is addressing an important point about the underlying message of this saccharine story. First of all, the poignancy is generated by using "Stereotypes." Second, if "Love" is the main issue that is being discussed then why is it necessary to use dishonest, prejudicial and manipulative techniques to get the point across. I suppose the whole thing was designed to create "guilt" in those people who may have identified with the professor. That type of retribution using manipulation of the reader's emotions clearly does not satisfy the "love" motif.
Anonymous, I appreciate your attack at the essential phoniness of this message but wonder if you have a more positive message to put in its place and not in Uranus.
