I pledge to ride a rollercoaster. For a long time I haven't been brave enough to ride a roller coaster. Other people tell me not to be afraid, but they have not been able to convince me. My dad told me that a man should not fear anything. However, when I stand in front of a roller coaster I feel like something bad will happen. Yet right now, I really want to be brave enough to do that. That is my pledge.--Fengyu Xu #OneBraveThing

One of the bravest things I did in my life happened one day when I was having fun with my friends. I saw two big guys hitting a little guy. I wasn't too big, but I was brave and I told them to stop. They ignored me, so I punched one of them. They started to hit me. My friends didn't help me because they were scared. I had to go to the hospital, but I felt good because I helped that guy.--Jose Louis Aparicio #OneBraveThing

One brave thing which inspired me was Sun Yet Sen leading a revolution to create a new China. He was the father of the Republic of China. He overthrew the Qin dynasty and set up a new country.--Dong Tao #OneBraveThing
Nicolaus Copernicus was a "problem boy" when he was little because he always asked questions. Because of his spirit, he knew much more than other kids. His parents were proud of him and encouraged him to ask more about what he didn't know. That's a kind of bravery. He was not afraid of people laughing at him and he was honest about his knowledge. He became a famous astronomical scholar and the founder of modern astronomy. His story encourages me to be a better student.--Mufan Xi…
When I was in 6th grade, I was preparing for the Yewon Art School entrance exam. I was weak in attention and when I started to prepare for the art examination, I felt it was too hard for me. I decided to be brave and keep trying. I learned many things from this experience, and I got into the school!--SoYeon Kwon #OneBraveThing
When I was young, I was really afraid of being alone. One day, I was staying at home by myself because my parents went to another city for work. At night, I felt someone was standing behind me, and it was raining outside. Then it started to thunder. I thought there was someone in the house. I called my mom, and she told me to turn on the lights and listen to music. I did this and I was able to make it through the horrible night. This made me braver than before.-- Yuanyuan Chen…
Traveling to another city by myself is the most brave thing I have done in my life. Half a year ago, I went to Tianjin, baeutiful city near Beijing. I like this city very much. Compared to Beijing, Tianjin has less pollution and fewer people. The people in Tianjin are kind-hearted and warm. One weekend, I traveled there by myself. This is the first time I went far away from home. I traveled on a old fashioned train for two hours. When I arrived there I felt free!--Tianyan Zhang…
One brave thing from history which has inspired me was when Thich Quang Duc, a Vietnamese Buddhist, burned himself to death without screaming, without moving, without doing anything but sitting down and praying. He was protesting the persecution of Buddhists by his government. To me, Thich Quang Duc is a very brave person; not everyone can do what he did. He sacrificed himself to improve the lives of others, and that is amazing.--Luis de Torres #OneBraveThing
I am inpsired by my Dad. He is a man who doesn't brag, he listens to others and thinks. He bravely travels over the world, and from all this experience he gets good ideas and does good things. He is my Dad and he helps me. I want to become like him.--Maximilian Lapp #OneBraveThing
