I stepped into a heated argument between a group of youths, who were about to get violent with another young person. I talked them out of doing anything silly, allowing the victim to make his retreat. But afterwards I was very shaky, when I realised that I had actually put my own saftey in jeopardy!

I stood up to an abusive partner and kicked him out of my door and my life. I felt scared, but proud of myself.

I smacked a cockroach to death the other night, instead of screaming for my flatmate to do it for me.

I was at a party and a man started beating his wife. I stepped in the middle and asked him to stop it. Giving the woman time to get away and call the police.

Today my little ones screamed 'Snake!' from the backyard. I went running to find a giant worm. Bravely I placed it back in the garden bed.

After graduating from college, I was swimming in our hotel pool with some of my younger siblings. My youngest sister started acting strangely in the deep end, but wasn't making any noise. There was no life-guard on duty, and only a few people were around. I swam over as fast as I could and pulled her into the shallow end. She told me she'd slipped off the drop-off in the pool and had been having real trouble staying afloat. But that's what older sisters are for. :-)

Iam a mother of a nine year old and a five year old beautiful little girls and I often help out at school activities when I was approached by young kids at school asking for my help because of a bully classmate who would always yell at them and beat ,hit and threaten their other classmates I felt how scared the children was and so I asked them what can I do to help them and they asked me to talk to their school principal and so I did after that the children thanked me..and now even though Iam now picked on by the bully mom of that bully child I dont mind because I know the children are safe at school now specially that the teachers are aware of whats happening with the children, I felt brave because even if I knew that I'll be picked on by a bully mom I did what was right and Im proud of it..
