(I'll post my opinion later)
Now the choice bewteen a sibling or a best friend. Now that is a tough one . . .
He can screw himself too I voted save child. I can always get another husband
Second what? Second child?
If I die saving the child, is that the second option or ???
I voted 'other' since I wasn't sure that I fit that third option since I only have one child.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
DiaperDiva, the counselling we did (via videos/workbooks) said something similar. I'm glad it wasn't the minister (my dad!) who said it because he would have heard realllllllllllly bad words when I voiced my opinon on that one!
I know it isn't a fun question and this may sound silly but with all the talk of war and such I've been thinking a lot about it. We just moved to an area that they say would be one the first attacked if it were going to happen. i'm not living in fear just wondering what my own reaction would be.
I read a very interesting article on this very topic. They explained it as nature's way of keeping the family *together*. The husband protects the wife, which basically means the whole family, because the mother protects the children, kwim?
Ugh, maybe if I dig I can find the article again....ANYWAYS...I would protect my children
I'm flying overseas in August with the two kids, and I think that if something were to happen, at least I'm with them too.
Actually I would save any child. My husband and I have discussed this one a few times. There is this AWFUL commercial where a young child basically asks the audience if they'd save him from a speeding train wreck. Really freaked me out. I said YES without reservation. I decided that the only things that would stop me from risking [or trading] my life for a child would be risking or trading my own son [I wouldnt do that] or risking or trading both mine and my husband's life.
My husband agreed. As long as our son and one of us survived, we'd save children no doubt and other people most likely. Interesting that the thought was that men feel differently. My husband had a really really hard time with the *concept* of my dying. But did feel if it came to it our son needed *A* parent more than we needed a spouse. Interesting that we did take it to the next level of "If you knew your son and spouse were safe..." would you risk your life saving others. He actually had an easier time of it with this one conceptually and said "No Doubt, Yes"
Yucko. I suppose I would save dd first because it's my job, my role, my life, to look after her. but I love dp dearly and would die a little myself without him.
And I also don't think I could live with myself if I didn't try. Situations in life aren't so cut and dry. If both your child and husband were in peril, you wouldn't *know* that going back for the other would mean your death for sure... at least in most situations. So if I saved my baby, then watched my dh die, or know that I *might* have been able to save him, I just wouldn't be able to live with myself afterwards.
Very tough survey. I've been reading responses since it got posted, and its taken me this long to really think of what I would do.
