What would you do?

In books, films, and newspapers, scary situations come up, such as robberies and kidnappings, and violence in general. I used to wonder sometimes, "If something like that happened to me, what would my reaction be?"

Then one day this past September, my mom gave me, my brother, Joao, and my sister, Bruna, a ride to school. On the way, my mom saw a good friend on the side of the road and stopped the car to say hello to her. When she stopped, Bruna, Joao, and I got out and started to walk the rest of the way to school. We had walked this route many times.
