41-year-old High School teacher James Hooker has fallen in love with an 18-year-old girl. The girl is his student. He has known her since she was 14. He has left his wife and children to be with her.
This just seems wrong to me.
"In making our choice, we've hurt a lot of people," Hooker acknowledged. "We keep asking ourselves, 'Do we make everyone else happy or do we follow our hearts?' "
Good point, Hooker. Doing the right thing just to make other people happy is really kind of stupid. Much better to do the wrong thing and make yourself happy.
I shouldn't have been so judgmental.
