Strongest!

Strong

Many years ago I was in a situation where I confronted a policeman who was beating a man. Three of us had been following them because they picked this guy out of a crowd because he was a street person.

They got him down an alley and started hitting him. I couldn’t believe it. He hadn’t done anything but stand on the corner listening to music like we were.

Something in me took over and I started yelling at the cop to stop which he finally did. Sometimes you don’t know the inner strength that you have until you need it.

That day I stood up for someone else and am proud that I did!

    I love your story and it is wonderful that you took such action. Apathy is a bad thing, action when warranted is great thing. Thank you for helping that person.
