Bravery is a very important value in life. It allows us to do things that either help ourselves or help others.

Think about the Heroes of Chapultepec Castle. It took a lot of bravery for those boys to fight and defend their flag. They were children, just like you, but were even braver than most adults.

There are many people, children amongst them, that are extremely brave, and we do not even hear about them. I am going to show you different kinds of bravery, done by different people.

Please think seriously about it and strive to being brave yourselves. Even simple things in our everyday life requires us to be brave.

Do you think you are being very brave by coming to school everyday? Well, here are some children who risk their lives and are extremely brave because they travel through difficult terrain in order to reach their  schools. Would you do that?

What would you be willing to do to save another human being or an animal?


Brave people get over the fear they feel because of their love or compassion or civility  is even greater than their fear.

It takes a lot of courage to do what these people have done. But, you can start with simple things, like not being afraid of a harmless insect, or a little mouse. You can start being brave by standing up to a bully or defending a classmate from a bully.

Think of ways you can be brave or have been brave,  and share it with your teacher and classmates.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
― Nelson Mandela

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. J. K. Rowling
