"Courage is standing up for yourself or for somebody else even when you're afraid. You never know what the outcome might be. There was a girl at school that got picked on a lot because her hair was nappy, her clothes weren't too fresh, and she smelled. People laughed in her face, touched on her clothes, and said, 'You're stinky.' She just sat there and cried. One day I got fed up and said to them, 'You wouldn't like it if that was you. You wouldn't like it if that was your little sister. Nobody in this world is perfect.' We argued back and forth, and then the girl who had been bullied wiped her face, stood up, and started speaking for herself. Up until then, she didn't know she had a friend."
