Ok, most people would probably, say, run in front of a bus to save their child or their spouse… so that isn’t what we’re talking about here.
Would you run in front of a bus to save a stranger (child or adult)? Homeless person? Dog?
Would you do it if you KNEW you would be permanently disabled? (say, legs chopped off)
Would you do it if you KNEW you would die?
Now here is another question: SHOULD you do it if you KNOW you’ll die? Now I realize that in the real world, you don’t KNOW these things, but we’re talking hypothetical, hindsight, etc. Let’s say you die to save the life of a child. Was it the right thing to do? What about if you die to save an elderly person? Keep in mind that your own family will mourn you. Now what about if you are a parent. Say my own situation… you have a four year old at home. Would you be right in saving someone’s life if it meant giving up your own and leaving your child without you? You would be a hero to the other person’s family, what about to your own?
