Contemplating our actions in critical and life-threatening situations is very difficult. In such situations, we are mentally not in a place to analyze everything with a clear mind. We do not have enough time to consider all the available choices and make the best decision for everyone. When we are in danger, our hearts are pounding and we can’t think straight. Our body is in a fight or flight mode where we should act immediately. At such moments, we can’t judge anyone for how they act, even if they act selfishly. However, there are some people that always go the extra mile for others. Even if their own life is in danger, they put others first, which is truly amazing. They prioritize the safety of those that are smaller and weaker than them, and this heroism should be appreciated.
