A teen wanted to be “cute” and went out of his way to declare his ‘promposal’. But in his eagerness to impress his date, he desecrated a national monument that is considered a crime. What started as his excitement for the prom night may end up with him spending time in jail for committing graffiti.

The teen used black spray paint to have the word “prom…ise?” and other declarations of love written on the Colorado National Monument. The park staff announced on Saturday that what the teen did is considered graffiti and is punishable by up to six months in prison and a $500 fine.

The teen responsible for the graffiti remains unidentified. The Colorado National Park Service is asking for the public’s help to find the person responsible for the vandalism.

Monument representative Ranger Frank Hayde told the media that they may be more lenient if the teen turns himself in and admit his mistake.

It is becoming a trend for high school students to become more daring and creative in their manner of asking their prospective dates to their proms, popularizing in the process the term ‘promposal.’ Many are fun and positive in their approach, gaining the attention even of celebrities at times. Some teens, however, have courted trouble by using a political, racial or controversial message in their proposal.

Most comments on social media agree that what the teen did was wrong, and some call for him to be punished to learn his “lesson.” Others say the message was right, but he wrote it in the wrong place.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">IMO kid should learn and have to do 1,000 hours of community service in 24 months and pay the fine or he should get he max and learn his lesson. It’s a great message but he needs to learn. Millennials won’t learn unless you punish them the right way.</p>&mdash; Brett Miller ⚾️ (@Brett_Miller92) <a href="https://twitter.com/Brett_Miller92/status/1006221243929030657?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 11, 2018</a></blockquote>

Yet, there are those who view it as “no big deal.”

Excuse me!! Would you stop for a moment?! O...man...Haven't you thought-one day- about yourself ? Who has made it? Have you seen a design which hasn't a designer ?! Have you seen a wonderful,delicate work without a worker ?! It's you and the whole universe!.. Who has made them all ?!! You know who ?.. It's "ALLAH",prise be to him. Just think for a moment. How are you going to be after death ?! Can you believe that this exact system of the universe and all of these great creation will end in in nothing...just after death! Have you thought, for a second, How to save your soul from Allah's punishment?! Haven't you thought about what is the right religion?! Read ... and think deeply before you answer.. It is religion of Islam. It is the religion that Mohammad-peace upon him- the last prophet, had been sent by. It is the religion that the right Bible- which is not distorted-has preached. Just have a look at The Bible of (Bernaba). Don't be emstional. Be rational and judge.. Just look..listen...compare..and then judge and say your word. We advise you visiting :
