A teenager from DeKalb County gets a Bravo Zulu for her courage – she stabbed a would be kidnapper with a pencil, which allowed her to make an escape.
The 14-year-old was on her way home from dance practice when a black van pulled up, and the men tried to grab her, Police said, dding that the girl got away when she stabbed one of the men in the arm with a pencil. The girl was not seriously hurt, police said.
The young lady remains unnamed by the press, but she deserves congratulations and praise. She also stands out as a perfect example of why I advocate resistance in the face of violence. You should never, ever let yourself be taken anywhere against your will; in those situations the odds for survival are really not in your favor.
