Heroism is not limited to age, size, or weight. In fact, heroism is something that empowers one to stand up against their fear and fight for what is right. The same thing happened a few days ago where a six-year-old boy defended his sister from a vicious dog attack by pushing her behind him and getting bitten on his face.
Six-year-old Bridger Walker got about 90 stitches on his face and had to go through immediate surgery in order to save his life. He also mentions that it is his dream to ride in an ambulance; certainly not as a patient but as a lifesaver. In addition, brave Walker also added that if anyone has to die it should be him and not his sister. And wow! It is truly heartwarming to see the love this little boy has for his little sister. Doesn’t it?
Avengers gather to honor Bridger Walker for his heroic act
