Early this morning in Windrixville, Jay Mountain two Greasers named Johnny Cade and Ponyboy Curtis, showed great courage and bravery by saving young Socs that were trapped inside a burning church.
The two boys asked the people around the church what was happening. Apparently the group of Socs around the area were having a school picnic and suddenly they saw the church on fire.
A worried woman ran to the leader of the trip, Jerry, and told him that a couple of kids are gone missing. Hearing some faint screaming coming from the inside of the church, the two gallant young bots rushed in to rescue the children.
“They deserve to live more than me; I hope they have a good life ahead of them. They shouldn’t turn out like me, a murderer.” Cade said. Knowing they would suffer some serious burns, the two Greasers still continued saving the young Socs. When they hoarded all the kids, they were quickly sent to the hospital to get treated. The older one, Cade, suffered some serious burning and back injuries. Ponyboy, on the other hand, was saved by the thick jacket he wore. Ponyboy said, “When I was rescuing the children, it was so hot I thought I was going to faint if I didn’t take my jacket off. Good thing I didn’t take it off, it saved my life.” If it’s not for the heroic act these two young men made, many children would have lost their future.
“We didn’t do it for fame or glory, we just did what was right.” said the Greasers.
