I was walking in my town with my friend and we had just finished trick or treating. My mom was on her way to pick us up and it was only about 9:30. I saw an older man coming down the sidewalk and I didn’t think anything of it. My friend was walking in front of me and the minute he passed her he grabbed me around the waist. I screamed “GET OFF” and gave him a knee to the groin. He then let go of me and ran about a block before turning around and looking at us while walking away. I called my mom and she got us about two minutes later because she was already on her way. I never thought that anything like that would have happened to me, especially in an environment that I thought was completely safe. Prepare really helped me out in this situation and I encourage it to be taught in classes at high schools and middle schools all over the country.
