What would you do?

Tonight we saw a victory after a horrible tragedy earlier in the week.  I've been watching the coverage in little snippets.  I can't take in too much or I start feel overwhelmed.  I write suspense but I certainly don't live it.
The reporters said that one of the ways the authorities zeroed in on the suspects is the nonchalant way they walked away as the bombs went off.
The reporter said people either run from danger or run to it.
My husband would run to it. I didn't even have to ask him.  He's like that.
My knee-jerk answer when my husband asked me what I would do was -- run from danger.  Though I'd like to say I'd run to the danger or at least try to help those around me.
But honestly I think my first reaction would be to freeze in shock.
What would you do?

  2. It's hard to know for sure until it happens to you, but I'm basically a chicken so I'd probably run. Once I got away, then I might think about going back to help people. After the shooting at The Batman movie last summer I went to see the movie with my husband,son and daughter. It was impossible not to think about the shootings. My son told me that he'd dive in front of his sister if someone started shooting. I didn't doubt him for a minute. So sad that we have to think of these things while going about our ordinary lives.

    1. I haven't been able to bring myself to watch Batman. There's something about knowing what the movie sparked that leaves me uneasy.
      Thanks for stopping by Tammy.
