JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The little girl nearly beaten to death at a Southside electronics store will receive an award for bravery Thursday.

The Justice Coalition will honor the youngster with the Outstanding Courage and Bravery Award at the Champions for Justice Award Dinner. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Inside the Morocco Shrine Center on St. Johns Bluff Road.

In August, a 9-year-old was dragged into a bathroom at a Best Buy and attacked by a man. The girl was bloodied, but survived. The suspect, James Tadros, was arraigned last month.

Nine awards are expected to be handed out at the ceremony.

I'm so sorry truthseeker, I too did not learn the meaning of true bravery until I grew up. I believe it is one of those words we have to 'experience' through something 'horrific' to feel and understand, since it is not usually 'taught'. A nine year old child is a good age to learn as apposed to a life time of abuse and fear. This child 'cheated death'...she became 'brave' young in life, now she will probably be able to face anything.
