UPDATE: Jennifer Lawrence’s Friend with Down Syndrome Gets His Own Moment in the Spotlight

The other day I posted some excerpts from a story in New York’s Daily News about Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence’s longtime friendship with Andy Strunk, a young man with Down Syndrome that she met in church many years ago. Now the local TV station in Louisville, Kentucky – WAVE3 – has given Andy his own moment in the spotlight in a feature story about his friendship with the Hollywood star. Andy even calls Jennifer on the air, and she describes as one of the kindest, funniest people she’s ever been around.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a sweeter story today (H/T to Marci Golen):
