Sometime after college, I finally tore myself away from most of the useless programming on MTV. Occasionally something fun came about, like the Legally Blonde show, and I would set my DVR forgetting that MTV plays reruns 18 out of 24 hours a day.
Last week, my friends Josh and Kami were raving on their Facebook statuses about an episode of a new MTV show, 16 and Pregnant. The episode chronicles the story of a young couple who decide to give their baby girl for adoption. I had NEVER cried watching anything on MTV…until last week. The courage, strength, bravery and selflessness of these two teenagers should be an example to all of us.
So…since there’s nothing decent on summer TV anyway, take some time and watch this episode of 16 and Pregnant. It’s about an hour long, but I think it’s worth your time. And, as someone said to me, “I dare you not to cry.”
Here’s a link to the episode: http://www.mtv.com/videos/16-and-pregnant-ep6-catelynn/1615511/playlist.jhtml
