Ok, time for a little "what would you do?"
Here's the scenario:
You're walking through a mall parking lot with your SO/DH/DW and one child. All of a sudden you hear the squeal of tires. You look up and see a van racing toward you. You have to make a decision quickly. You know for a fact that one of you is going to be hit. What do you do?
- You grab you child and run, leaving SO/DH/DW to fend for him/herself.
- You grab your child and thrust him/her into so/dh/dw arms, push both of them out of the way, and prepare yourself for an impact.
- You grab so/dh/dw and run, leaving your child behind.
- You decided to close your eyes and allow all 3 of you to be hit.
There is no other option. You absolutely cannot save all 3 of you.
