Stories of Bravery Back to Stories of Bravery
Rebeckah from California
Bravery means to stand up for yourself, AS WELL as others who need love, care and support. This is a dangerous age we live in, and having a good heart with the courage to stand up for what is right is very rare.
I was sexually assaulted by a boy in my high school, and I decided it was right to report him because he hurt me, inside and out. Little did I know that he had assaulted at least 6 other girls in my school, and NONE of them reported him. He got away with it 6 times, maybe even more! I ended up being an inspiring figure to these girls and gave them the strength to come out and share their stories as well. It was a feeling like no other. I stood up for myself and those girls because I was born this way; no one, let alone one creepy guy, can tell me otherwise.
