Courage for you and others
I believe that courage plays a very big role in my life and even maybe many others as well.
I believe that courage has more than one meaning to some than others. To me, courage means that if you fear something, you face that fear and look past it. In my life, courage has taken me so far and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it. The person that I am just revolves around the idea of courage. Courage isn’t something that you just automatically have, but something that eventually everyone will find.
A big problem that almost all teens go through or have witnessed, is bullying. It doesn’t matter whether they were the bully, or they were victim. Everyone has gone through it. The topic of bullying makes me cringe but it is just a topic exploding with the idea of courage. People need to learn how to stick up for themselves and for others. It takes, courage to do that and that’s why people need to find where their courage lies. I know it may be hard to get the courage to stand up for yourself or for one of your peers. Even for someone that you don’t know.
Now a days I have seen videos on YouTube where there is a kid or even an adult being bullied and no one around them even bothers to step in and stick up for what they think is right.
Here is a video of a young kid who has been getting bullied most of his life and finally sticks up for himself : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isfn4OxCPQs
After I watched this video, It made me happy because this kid has been bullied for so long and he finally gained the courage to stick up for himself. This short clip inspired me to help other realize how important courage is and how it can really affect their lives. I know courage has changed my life and has made me who I am today.
