Motorcycle Rider Receives Reward for Stopping Knife-Wielding Woman

BACOLOD CITY – A motorcycle rider was rewarded for helping to stop a woman wielding a knife believed to be mentally challenged.

Heroism is the quality or action of a person who, often in the face of danger or misfortune, demonstrates extraordinary bravery, selflessness, and courage. It includes bravery and selflessness displayed in support of others or defense of morally good and just principles.

Heroes come in various forms and can emerge in everyday situations or extraordinary circumstances. They may be individuals who risk their own safety to save others from harm, such as firefighters rescuing people from burning buildings or bystanders performing CPR on someone in cardiac arrest.


Heroism can also be displayed by individuals who stand up against injustice, advocate for oppressed groups, or work tirelessly to bring about positive change in society.

Heroic acts can have a profound impact, not only on the lives of those directly affected but also on society as a whole. They remind us of the power of kindness, empathy, and solidarity in overcoming challenges and making the world a better place for everyone.
