If you lived in Libya...?

Or if there was a potentially dangerous uprising/revolution in your area would you stay to protect your home/community or try to get out?

  • Regardless of where I were living, if my family were at risk of danger.....I'd do everything I could to leave and get them to safety. My home is where my family is. No dwelling is worth putting them at risk.

  • I would get out. My children mean more than anything, and i would ensure their safety, first and foremost. Although I may want to fight for my rights, my baby needs me more.

    Doesn't have to be Libya, reading about all the people trying to leave got me thinking. If were happening in your community, what would you do?

  • If I were a natural born citizen, I would stay and fight for the future of my country. If I were living in another nation for work, etc~ I would leave.

    That's pretty easy to say, nobody would put thier family in harms way to protect posessions, but if your entire country was on fire where would you go?

  • It would really depend on the circumstances.

    I think most people with kids would make a judgement call based on the best thing for their kids...If I thought fleeing to another country held a safer route , I would take them and go that way. If it was too dangerous,. I would stay and fight.

  • It would depend upon my circumstances. If I had the means and somewhere else to go then yes I would leave. I don't think most are that fortunate though. Think about it, if someone told you that you had to pack up your family and go to another country and survive where would you go? How would you survive?
