Justin Bieber Makes 9/11 Teens' Dreams Come True

Justin Bieber Payton WallI fell in love with President Obama all over again last month after he told a 14-year-old girl named Payton Wall that he would hook her up to meet her hero, Justin Bieber. Wall lost her father in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks and recently wrote a letter to President Obama telling him her story and just happened to slip in a tidbit about her love for the Biebs.

After joining the President at Ground Zero back in May, she was told that her wildest dreams were coming true: Obama would arrange a meeting between Wall and his "buddy" Justin. And sure enough, he did. Payton became a true Belieber on Saturday when she, her sister Avery, and best friend Madison met with Bieber at Macy's in Herald Square in New York City.

Um, can you say jealous?!

The foursome rendezvoused in the VIP section of the store's eighth floor. Justin greeted them, pushed his hair to the side, and said, "Hi." And then all three girls collectively fainted, and that was it.

... OK, I'm joking. He did, however, ask them how they liked his new perfume and if they were wearing it. Selena, watch out -- sounds like Justin's making the moves on a younger woman! Of course, to honor her new pal Barack, Payton carried a life-size cardboard cutout of the President and posed with her two favorite men in a few shots.

Seriously, the President's doing some good here, don't you think? I'm not saying there aren't, erm, some other pressing issues to take care of. But think about how much this meant to Payton? This was monumental! She will most likely frame this photograph and keep it above her bed for the entirety of her existence. Hope her future boyfriend (and all her boyfriends before then!) doesn't mind.

What do you think about Payton getting to meet Justin Bieber?
