Antar, I agree that it would be hard if you had more time to ponder what you might take. It is also easy to see how people get stuck in bad
situations because it took them too long to get out, or had enough time to mill it over, so to speak. I am also an animal lover. It's completely
awful to think about, but if Situation X occurred, leaving only a few moments to get into a vehicle, I would have my family in the car in seconds.
Any animal that would listen to my commands and hurry along side of us as we gathered in, most likely the dogs, would be the only ones to come along.
It would be terribly hard to leave the other animals, but really If there is no time to really think of anything else except your family...what else
can be done? I'm sure you would do the same thing in that circumstance. If you were having doubts, I'd imagine that your children would keep you
focused and guide you. I understand that you aren't necessarily speaking of a flight response scenario, but I'm just throwing it out there. I
would imagine that a large amount of adrenaline would also keep you from feeling your knee and make you fly like the wind.
I based my answers as best as I could with what I have been told by other people...either through evaluations at work, bad car accidents that I have
been in, and other high stress/instant judgement call scenarios. If I put everything that I felt of myself in there, I might have scored a few points
On my way home tonight, I thought of this thread. A commercial came on the radio for ready.gov, and it was a freakishly alarming commercial with all
that is going on in the world and all that we discuss on ATS...asking if we will be ready for that moment. Good topic, Antar!
Be well! Doyder
