I Admire Bravery In Others

    Some women are very brave here in England.

    The clothes they wear are very sexy. Some girls in my college look very sexy. My parents insist my skirts at school are below knees at the hem. I have a camisole on under my blouse. Fortunately, they don't insist I'm veiled, but if we were in Algeria I would be!

    All Types of Bravery!

    I have many hero's, representing different types of bravery. I admire the bravery of all the members of Britain's armed forces & their allies. The police officers who police Britain's streets mostly unarmed. Other types of bravery include those people who have...

    where you're trying to simply ask one question:: "am I that big bother and why did you want to block me, why it takes too long to unblock me" I try to pretend that there is still one question, but so yeah... it feels the worst to pick a call when writing feels best for me, but I...

    Fearless

    To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshmen year of...

    Maybe I am bias, as I have an warrior-spirit and daily life is a test to my own bravery. Dealing with social anxiety, every time I step outside my door, it's a great test of willpower and pushing past my fears. BUT, I have deep and unwavering respect for those who are brave! Even...

    I think saying "I love you" is pretty brave,

    because you're risking the other person not saying it back.

    It's a Virtue

    In order to exhibit bravery, one must give of their 'self'. To risk something for someone else is a brave, even noble, act of love. To be brave we must loose our fear - fear for ourselves, fear of pain, fear of death. These are selfish fears and stand in the way of bravery, which...
