Question of the Week - Survival

Copyright (c) 123RF Stock Photos
This week's questions is brought to you by the Hunger Games. Just how far are you willing to go to survive?

I don't think I could kill someone else to survive. I like to think that I would volunteer to take my sisters pace if their names had been called although I probably would have been the first one killed.

Like you I couldn't kill to survive. Great issue.

I don't know if I could kill to survive or not- I guess it would depend on what I was defending and what foe I was facing.

Killer Zombie? Yeah, I'd probably kill it. Live human? Depends on what would happen if I didn't.

I would definitely volunteer to take the place of a sibling or child as Katniss did.

Can anyone really know until faced with that decision?

I always think about this question when people bring up eating other people to survive. Not sure I could do that! Even if they had died from natural consequences.

If it came down to my life versus another person's, I would most likely choose my life. I like to think I'm a survivor, but I do hope to be craftier to get rid of the competition than have to kill-kill a person.

I'm going to sound so cold, but like Katniss, I would kill to survive. Not because of a lack of respect for human life, but when faced with someone willing to take my life, I choose my life over theirs. Nothing personal, strictly survival.

I don't think I could do that either...But one never knows till they are faced with the situation..
