Have you read a newspaper this week? Have you watched the world news on television? I hope so.
You may have heard about the terrible accident on board the Italian cruise ship, where lots of people lost their lives when the ship sank. It has been reported that the Captain (who should have stayed on the ship until all its passengers and crew had got off to safety) jumped into a lifeboat first. It has been reported that he said he was “pushed into the lifeboat” and that it was not his choice to save his life first.
What would you do? Is it human nature to save your own life? If you had been the captain of the ship, would you have stayed on board the sinking ship knowing that you could loose your life? Is it ok to have a job which asks you to put your life at risk? Do people in charge of others have a responsibility to make sure that they are safe?
