I do believe that deep down each of us is brave in different ways and in different situations.
For example, there is the person who saves another person’s life, such as when someone falls off the subway platform and the other person rescues him.
Then there is the person who finds the courage to leave his or her country in order to go to another land and start a new life. That person is very brave, too, because starting a new life in a strange land and with a different language is very, very difficult.
Then there’s the person who is very shy, but who leaves the house in the morning to try to find a job and make a living. He somehow overcomes his fear.
There is the mother or father who works very long hours at a hard job in order to earn money to help support the family. That person is very brave, too.
There is also the person who is afraid of the local bully, but gathers his or her courage to stand up to the bully and tell him off.
So tell me about your own life and the time when you were brave. What was the brave deed or act you did? How did you feel – frightened or confident? Was it hard for you to be brave?
Or, if you wish, write about someone...
