I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.
This woman is amazing. She immediately distracts the attacker by taking his focus off the victim and putting it onto her. She keeps her distance, goading him into attack mode and making sure she’s out of striking distance and in position to flee in case things go south. When the attacker turns his attention back to the victim, she steps between them and shields him. She knows she’s small, but in this moment she doesn’t care- all she cares is that the other man is safe. This is beautiful. I hope we can all learn from her example.
I have stopped a few people when I am down town drinking from beating up someone. I don’t know if it is the fact that I have been hit by a man before so it doesn’t scare me, or that I just can’t stand to see someone get treated like that.
