K is for Knight in Shining Armor.


Dear Diary,

For K I recommend : Knight in Shining Armor.

Someone asked me how I imagine my knight in shining armour to be and I was stumped for a minute. The immediate thought that popped in my mind was I’m no damsel in distress to need a shining armor.

We have all read stories where a damsel in distress is tied to a tree or locked in a high tower and a knight in shining armour comes to save her, Following which they drive off happily into the sunset.

I believe a true knight does not always wear a  metal armor but has a heart of Gold. He/ she is one who helps somebody : a neighbor who volunteers to babysit, a friend who gives you company even for the most boring trip, someone who volunteers their shoulder for you to cry on and makes you smile, a good Samaritan who reaches out in times of difficulty.


You don’t necessarily need to know the person to be a knight in shining armor for them. It’s the action that counts. Go be someone’s Knight today.

Yes You!

  2. Very good idea, be a rescuer from something, but not necessarily danger. :)

  4. I think sometimes we could all use our own knight - even if only in metaphorical shining armour. :) But in general I'm no damsel in distress either. Still, now and then I could use a knight.

  10. Wonderful idea on what it means to be a knight in shining armour - a rescuer of others! I agree, it is something we can all do and be. Papa Bear is truly my knight in shining armour, he has all the qualities you mentioned, and so much more!
