When I was twelve years old, and I was still going to primary school, I wasn’t as much afraid of criminals as much I am now because I didn’t really understand what they could actually do.
One day, as I was walking down the street, I noticed a man wearing black was following an old woman, so I followed them to see if anything strange happened. The old woman was walking very slowly and she came to a narrow pass where probably her house was. She tried to find something in her bag but she started screaming when she suddenly saw the man threatening her. That’s when I made my move. I picked up a big stone and I thew it at his head. The man fell down and I quickly called the police. The old woman thanked me for helping her and the criminal ended up in prison, although he was injured.
It’s good doing something nice for other people because you feel nice too. So, in my opinion, if someone needs help you should not avoid them. Just give them a hand.
