    That had to be nerve-wracking. But good work, Serg!

    You did the decent thing. Be glad that you made a big difference to that girls life. That was the important job done right there.

    The lingering residual anger will not help anybody. The attacker, however offensive to you/us, is not your personal responsibility. At least not anymore now that the ordeal is over. Hopefully you can regain some composure after a couple of days.
    Good luck man :)

    You're a good man.

    As Veinbuster said, I find that going for a bike ride is a great way to clear my head. Of course, riding in the city can get you more riled up. So head to the hills, or go mountain biking - does wonders for the soul.

    And if you don't have a bike, take your kid's tricycle and ride around on that - at least it will make others in the neighborhood smile. :)

    It's awesome of you to step-in to offer help! I feel like a broken record, but in times of stress I recommend practicing yoga.

    Yeah! I was all hyped up for a few hours for sure!

    It’s a weird feeling.

    Thanks for the well wishes and support, guys.

    I honestly feel stupid being affected by it or even talking about how I feel.. I mean, like I said, nothing happened to me. All I did was walk across the street and put my 6’1” 210 pound barrel-chested-pointy-moob-man body between these two kids. I wasn’t assaulted or anything, I was just there and a little riled up about it afterwards.

    I’m just mad disappointed in the dude, and feel awful for the girl and her single mom having to deal with this stuff. I saw them take off for the evening, didn’t even feel safe in their own home. It’s days like that that I’m reminded how lucky I am to have been born a guy. Sh!t like that never happens to me.

    Serg,

    Don't be surprised if the girl and her Mom thank you for your actions, either by writing a card or letter, or doing something in appreciation. Hopefully, they will, if they know how to display appreciation. Don't expect it, but they might.

    You did an honorable thing, many don't get involved, glad it wasn't worse and got violent. He could have had a weapon or you could have gotten in trouble with the law. It could have been a lot worse.

    As for the negative vibrations going on, the only thing to do is release. Live, breath, get back into your rhythm ................... just stay away from the heavy bag. I used to be a welterweight and bag work does hell on guitar fingers.

    You reacted to an angry situation with compassion. My hat is off to you.

    You did good! The most important thing is it all worked out right. I can relate to your feelings. I once walked up on two hookers in a hotel lobby stealing jewelry from a drunk guest. LIke you I jumped in and luckily everything disbanded. But I know the weird feelings after.

    Wow, I go away for less than a week ...

    I would have suggested making some bread, kneading can be quite therapeutic.

    Good job. Know you've done a good deed for humanity - and really more than likely helped the person out more than you'll ever know.
