No? I took the implication that if others lives were to be dependent upon my choices, I would do nothing to save them or that they would surely come to harm.
Some years ago, being a Good Samaritan, I intervened in a situation which resulted me being attacxked by a knife weilding fellow who was quite intent in putting an unseemly hole or two in me. After the incident, as I played it back in my head, I was realized if I had to, I would have killed him, though during the incident there was no thought of that. There really wasn't much thought at all.
My point is, until you are actually in such a situation, you really do not know what you would do, and I would not wish it upon you or anyoner else. I hope you never find out what you would or would not do.
