Would you be the hero?

I want you to think about this before you answer. Would you be the hero in a life or death situation? I dont want to hear so bull answer that makes you sound cool I just what to know what you would do. This is an example If there were a gunman in school who is willing to kill someone would you take part in trying to stop him? If you were hiding and you witnessed an officer go down would you run out into the line of fire to save him and bring him to safety? (Would you pick up his gun to fight in order to save your friends?) Would you be willing to die trying to save a life? This is what I am talking about.

Ask yourself simpler questions, like "If my friend has had too much to drink (and I haven't), would I drive them home from the party even if it meant going out of my way and maybe getting my car puked in?" That's a lot more likely to come up in real life...

I like to think I wouldn't just go out the window, but I'm not so sure. If he's bent on killing everyone he can and an officer was down, I'd probably grab his sidearm and shoot the gunman dead once said gunman had turned around (why is it that school gunmen tend to be lousy shots?) since odds are, I'd be a better shot than him. Of course, that's if my odds of success were high and my odds of window-escape were low or someone I really cared about was in danger in another classroom, for example. As for home invasion, he's getting a face full of shotgun, baseball bat, or steel pipe, depending on what part of the house I was in.
it is questionable. I would probably block the door if i heard shots, but adrenaline kicks in, so you could almost do anything. it is difficult to think in those types of situations.

This is a very important topic that Pat has brought up. The answer (I believe) is simple, and ageless. You do what needs to be done. It might be easy or hard, or unsavory, but you do what must be done. This doe not mean throw your life away, it means use your brains and quiet your misgivings; and act. Be decisive.
oh... And don't forget, chicks dig scars.

i think I would stand my ground an fight. I put a lot of thought into it but what you said is true you dont know what you would do till it happens.
Still, when it comes down to the actual moment, no one can know for sure ahead of time how they will act/react.
