Shamlessly borrowed from Fox News:
QUARTZ HILL, Calif. — Don't mess with the marching band.
That's what California authorities are saying after a 17-year-old girl used her marching band baton to beat back two would-be muggers.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust says the Quartz Hill girl was walking to school April 24 when two men approached her from behind, tried to grab her coat and demanded money.
Instead, one got a punch in the nose and the other a kick to the groin. Rust says the girl then beat both of them with her band baton before she ran away.
The men had not been caught. But Rust says there's a clear message to take from the encounter:
"The moral to this story is don't mess with the marching band girls, or you just might get what you deserve. Final score: marching band 2, thugs 0."
I can't write it any better than they did, but I can offer commentary.
Here is more proof that it does not matter how old you are, how big you are, or how strong you are. The will to survive comes from within.
