What would I have done??

Thats thw question that I’ve been asking myself for the past few days. Last week, seven people died in a fire, one of those people escaped and went back in to save his brother.

Is he a hero??

Maybe to a lot of people he is… he should be considered one. He died trying to save a life. And if it were my sister stuck in a burning building, I would be the first to go in after her no matter what.

But then I take time to really think…

How many people everyday risk their lives for their brothers and sisters. And more importantly…do they get noticed?? So many people lose their lives everyday because they run boldly into the line of fire and we dont even appreciate it.

Our brothers and sisters are away from home fighting a war that has taken many lives…and the question still remains… what would I do??

Would you put your life on the line for your brothers and sisters?? Would you travel to a foreign country?? Would you even be brave enough to run back into a harsh fire to save a sibling and nephew??

Or have we just become that careless… looking out for self?

What would you do??

R.I.P to all those that lost their lives in that deadly fire…
