Mitch Lipka writes in “Heroes: Subway Rescue” about Ismael “Mel” Feneque, a former high school wrestler, who risked his life by jumping in the subway platform and rescuing Lisa Donath . Feneque saved her because he has a daughter, “she could be anybody’s daughter”. People had thought Feneque was insane to go after a complete stranger with a train closing in. Officials said that it was a great thing that he had done, and they thank him for it. And by that, one complete stranger saves a life of a loved one.
Mike and Charlie had been good friends since Mike had been hired by the fire department. The other guys dived to stop Charlie about 10 feet from the fire and they pulled him down the hallway towards the window they had entered. He was screaming “Let me go!”. but the men didn’t listen and they saved his life in the end. They reached the ladder and were escorted down where they got new oxygen.
Ponyboy is different from the others. He isn’t just another greaser. He isn’t like the other greasers. He’s kind-hearted, educated, smart, respectful and a good friend. When the children were burning up in that church Ponyboy was the first one who jumped in to save them.
Cherry is smart and dreamy like Ponyboy, and they have a good conversation.

Later in the essay, you will notice how Johnny is courageous, caring and friendly. Johnny shoved me toward the window “Get out!” I leaped out the window and heard timber crashing and the flames roaring right behind me, pg. 93. Johnny risks his life saving Ponyboy and many little kids from the burning church. This proves that he is courageous.

Last we checked, riding in rodeos was no crime, but jumping little kids is pretty bad. I were also a tad shocked when Dally got out of the hospital by holding a knife to a nurse's throat. With all of this Dallas (Dally) Winston, was a hard nut but he loved Johnny and when he blamed Johnny’s death because of his actions he couldn’t take it and went on a all out suicide mission to die.
