Oh, cut me a break…
GILFORD, Mich. A teenager who flew to the Middle East to be with a man she met on MySpace.com said Friday she intends to marry him.
“I love him very much,” 17-year-old Katherine Lester said of Abdullah Jimzawi, 20, who works in his father’s business delivering goods to West Bank convenience stores.
Lester appeared on ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” with her father and stepmother. Jimzawi also spoke with ABC during a taped portion of the segment, describing how the pair “can’t live without each other.”
After hearing what Jimzawi said, Lester began weeping.
“It’s true,” she said. “I love you. That’s all I can say.”
The two have resumed communication online since she returned home.
“Our initial reaction was to isolate her, to lock her up and just keep her safe here in America,” said her father, Terry Lester. “But that’s unrealistic because you can see the love they have for each other.”
Ok, I can honestly say that her father is an idiot.
How many of us that are in our 30’s can look back and say we were honestly in love at 17? I can’t. How about you?
