Pony Boy is brave because he risked his life to save children from a burning church. Pony Boy Quot:"It ain't fair!" I cried passionately. "It ain't fair that we have all the rough breaks!"
Dally got heart broken because the one thing he loved died and he lost control and robbed a grocery store and got shot at and died. Dally Quote:"I was crazy, you know that, kid? Crazy for wantin' Johnny to stay out of trouble, for not wantin' him to get hard. If he'd been like me he'd never have been in this mess."
Johnny is also brave because he also ricked his life to help out Pony Boy to save the children, but got hit from a log from the top of the church and died known as a hero. Johnny Quote:"I had to. They were drowning you Pony. They might have killed you. And they had a blade… They were gonna beat me up."
