wow. good thing you did not includes a own child. I'll go and give the parachute to my mothers without any doubt because she's the best. She gave everything that she can possibly afford just to give me happy ever since I'm still a baby. even risk her life when she gave birth to me. Mothers are like guardian angels here on earth. so, even in that way, i want to show her how much i'm thankful to her

aguas_aj!Your wife is also a mother who risked her life to give birth to your kids.Why didn't you think of her?In fact,she depended on you the whole life and followed you like a shadow for you.She has the same qualities as your mother and who would you choose between them?

Your question is tough but I like it because it confuses my mind. If I'm going to choose among them, honestly speaking, I would not give the parachute to any of them and even me. I just wanted all of us to die in that plane crash. My reason is, I don't want to have regrets in the end for choosing somebody else to give the parachute. Its a tough decision in choosing among them so to be fair, I would just ignore that parachute so that we'll die together and if not, Thank God. Another thing, if I gave the parachute to any of them then he was able to live, I don't think he would be happy because he lost us and I chose to use that parachute and I survived, same thing as him, I would not be happy too because I lost my loved ones. I know that each life is important but in that case and in that situation, I can't choose. I just wanted to be fair so I chose none of them even me. :)

Its a brave thing to do.. but the problem is some people want to live no matter what.. ............. Because you are a girl let say..how about your boyfriend? or best friend? Your not blood related and they also think of their own parents and family. They also want to survive and see them. Also how about your aunt and uncle? How about their children? they are not in the plane with you..If they die who will look after their children? If one survive at list.. And This time somebody will be violent just to have that parachute. Still don't want to give that parachute to anybody?

Bianca!that will not be a nice decision to avoid a chance for somebody.Why not put two or three kids together in that parachute and push them down.After all a parachute designed for an adult can bear the weight of those kids and they may live together at the least and have their lives saved.

bulastika!That is really a tricky question.The whole family took the plane,okay.But who is the pilot?Does any member is supposed to fly the plane himself?Well,my family members don't know how to fly an airplane and so we should have had a pilot and I think,he will be the one using the parachute.

bulastika!I feel sorry if you get offended by my intrusions.I don't have the least intention to wound anybodies feelings.Just this post interests me and I want to add some thing more by my comments.This is an imaginary situation and demands quick decision.But we can always think of it again leisurely.Again,I like to say,just I wanted to prolong this post an interesting debate.

Thank you. But the essence of my topic is not to think. The essence of my topic is what inside your heart. In a situation like that theirs nothing you can do but follow what your hearts dictates. Because your heart is who you are. If your selfish you will save yourself. If not then you offer it to somebody who you think deserve to live more. .. This post is about character. .. And even yours is accepted here.

My husband is the most important person in my world! The kids will be fine (they're all grown, with their own families, or I might think differently), but he and I have always had each other at the top of our list!

cobrateacher!Will your husband accepts this offer?If so,didn't it mean that he did not love you back as intensely as you love him?.I think he should also prove his love and so the parachute deserves some other person.There will be less time to argue and you have to think quick.
