Probably just voicing that thought condemns me to being a coward. But I’ve never been in a life or death situation. Listening to all the news about the jet that went down makes me wonder what I would do in an emergency. I venture to guess that most of us like to think that we would perform admirably in the heat of battle or in a life or death situation. I know there are some who have already made up their minds to save themselves and to hell with the rest. I don’t condemn that thinking. If you don’t look out for yourself, who will. But I’m sort of the opposite of that: I have made up my mind to save others at the expense of myself. Only because I’m old enough and have lived enought that I’m ready to go. My only question is whether I would have the intestinal fortitude to follow through if given the opportunity. I am squeamish around human’s who are bleeding profusely. My knees shake when I get a good dose of adreniline. I am deathly afraid of heights. So I know that I am not “fearless.” My only hope is the thought that I’ve heard expressed elsewhere that bravery is not fearlessness in the face of danger, but rather the ability to overcome your fears and force yourself to do what you believe is the right thing in the face of your fear. Kudos to the crew of the jet, and to the passengers who helped others off before themselves.

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
