Who Would You Save?

               Let us supposed you are an expert swimmer and you took a boat ride in a beautiful large lake with your mother, your wife (or husband or fiancee) and your only child (or nephew or niece, if you are single or without child) and for whatever reason, the boat capsized and sank to the bottom of the lake.  There is no other person in the lake except the four of you.  You are the only one who can swim and you can only save one person because of the distance of the lake from the shore.  Who will you save?  Please explain your answer.

i'd save the kid cause she/he is the most vulnerable. I think my mom and husband would like me to do the same thing. or if they were the ones in my position, they'd save the child too!

I am honestly not sure what I would do. I would like to say the child, becuase as the commenter above says - they are most vulnerable.

Hi Wendy,
May it never happen to you. That is really a very difficult situation to be in. Your choice is excellent my friend. Thanks for your visit and honest comment. God bless you and your loved ones always my friend.

Hi MsPennylane,
Yes, in that kind of situation, the life of a child who has yet to unfold is very precious indeed. Thanks for your visit and great comments. God bless you and your loved ones always my young friend.

that is tough. i'm inclined more on saving my child. oh, God, i don't know.

i'll do everything possible to save all of them. i'll stay afloat and tell them to relax and hold on to my arms. i'll tell them to cooperate with me so no one drowns.

thank God, my mom and husband knows how to swim. they'll be the one who'll try to save me because i don't swim. haha!

Hi Pia,
Madaya ka sis Pia. He,he,he,*lol*. Well, I can't blame you for trying to save all of them. Anyway, this is just a conjectural situation. Sige na nga lusot ka na. You can give whatever answer you want. This is your blog remember? I'm just the moderator. Thanks for your visit and comments. O kelan ka sasali sa Filipinos Unite!!!? God bless you always my dear sister and friend.

caca said...

hellow mel,

miss me or di mo na ko kilala. hahah

hmm, ang hirap ng mga tanong mo! hehehe! i-save ko yung closest (distance i mean), lahat sila love ko, pero i can only save one.

siguro kung reality, baka instinct will tell me, i'll save my child. dunno, like i said hirap ng sagot mo, eh tanong pala!

Hi Pia,
You are already included in the registry of members. Thanks for joining Filipinos Unite!!! God bless you always my dear sister and friend.

Hi Caca,
Of course I missed you. Mahirap yatang makahanap nang ka blog na kasing kalog at kwelang katulad mo. Regarding the question, those are all situational questions to test your reactions to different circumstances. Most probably, all would answer the child because she is the most vulnerable and helpless of the three. Thanks for your visit and viewpoint. God bless you always my young kalog friend.

Hi Sir Mel, I would say that I would save my mother first because without her, I'm not in this world either. You can get another husband/wife and bear another child but not a mom...

Would love to xlink with you po, if you don't mind.. thanks!
