    I'm the type who's stupid enough to jump in front of a bullet for a stranger, so yeah.....I'd risk my neck for friends and family........even if I don't like a certain relative, I'd do it anyway. It's just like some weird reflex.....whenever I think someone is about to get hurt...

    Hi!:) I always tell my family

    and friends that no matter what happens, I would give my life up for them in a heart beat even though I'm so young still.:) even if it was a complete stranger I would still give my life up for them because no matter what, to me, others lives are more important to me than my own...

    I don't know how this would help If you wanted

    to save someone else it would help for you to be alive Even metaphorically speaking, your still losing someone for the sake of someone else. Instead of giving your life for someone.. Why don't we both just live <3,

    Not Everyone Wants To Live.

    Life is meaningless. Just waiting to die. Not gonna commit suicide because I'm afraid of pain.

    Not Just Anyone!

    I'd gladly give up my life if I knew doing so will save the life of someone I love - especially my loved ones. However, I don't have many loved ones, but the few who I consider loved ones mean everything to me. I have high standards when it comes to friends, and I won't be guilt...

    I've said this a few times before

    but I'll say it a couple more. If I saw someone's life in danger I'd easily take the punch, hit, bullet, etc. for them in a heartbeat. I hate seeing people sad or mad or hurt, even if they did 'deserve' it but to me, nobody deserves the punishment of pain. It's just cold hearted...

    Anyone.

    My dream is to become a person whom people remember for my helpfulness, someone who'd listen to them when no one would, to cheer them up when they were sad, a person who'd they'd consider strong-emotionally. Whenever i'm sad, i start to make others smile more often. Some people...

    I don't want to die. I'm still young and I have my whole life in front of me. But.... If dying is asked of me, I'll bear that cross with honor. To save someone else so they can live... It's the ultimate sacrifice.... But the ultimate honor as well....

    Yes, if I had no other way of saving someone I

    loved, without dying myself. Then I see no reason not to, I could get hit by a car 20 mins from now, I might as well go out with a bang, and a helpful action :)

    Life Isn't That Important

    What a wonderful way to go!  I envy people who are given the chance to lose their own lives in saving someone else.  We all must die.  Why not in a way that helps give meaning to all the rest?  So, I'm very alert to situations where others may be in danger and...
