Adventures in the Lone Star State

Is It Really Worth It?

First off, my heart goes out to the family of the couple that perished in this fire. It’s a terrible thing that have occured. The question I ask is, “Is it really worth it?”

To summarize, the family had time to escape the blaze. However, the son decided to go back into the house to save the cat. The 80-year old couple waited for the son, but they lost their lives as the flames engulfed the truck. The son suffered second- and third-degree burns.

The cost to save a cat: 2 lives and almost a third.

It’s not that I dislike animals; it’s just that I sometimes don’t understand how individuals are willing to sacrifice their own lives (and others’ lives) to save a pet.
