A Fight!

People are different, everyone thinks differently, has different
characteristics people act differently, no one is the same in this world. This
is good, but some of the time young people do things they regret later,
sometimes they cant control what they do, other times they do things to get
respect from other people. One of these things I am talking about is fighting
between other fellow peoples. When I was at the age of 9, I saw my first fight
between two of my best friends. It all started approximately 3 weeks before the
actual fight with a silly name calling game which turned very bad. One day both
of these very close friends were in a classroom together with a group of other
students in the same room, one person started to call another a name to get
recognised by other students as being ‘big\' and win respect from them. The two
friends were the same age, and strength and didn\'t want to look bad in front of
the other students, so the two friends said a comment back to each other in
defence. It started of as a small game, but by the end of the class, it was
getting serious. This continued for about 3 weeks, then one day they were in the
same class as each other, again throwing comments at each other when one said to
the other; "lets take this out side". Everyone around them urged them to fight
so after the class that\'s exactly what they did. Arms were flying everywhere,
the other students were shouting anger at them to hurt each other more, and more.
I remember standing there helplessly wanting to stop them, but knew if I got
involved I would most probably be suspended for interfering. This made me sad,
for I didn\'t have any control of any of my good friends.
