Re: Another newbe sank their boat
Its called principled love through the ages when someone risks his life out of compassion and brotherly love to save others.
"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. ... "
"The needs of the many outweigh those of the one or the few"
Even "Hardened Criminals" sometimes find that they have this love inside them and may themselves be found running into a burning building to save a child they heard crying or similar.
It's a built in noblest trait of humanity that you would have to work hard to deny or be absolutely frozen in fear and afterwards people who did deny it letting others perish because they were unwilling to face giving the full measure of devotion then have a troubled conscience plaguing them the rest of their lives.
Not insane/crazy but loving and giving people who at the core of their being deeply care for their friends, neighbors and family.
However this is different than rescuing someone from a financially dumb mistake or inconvenient situation, this is about life and death. The Adults who sank their boat are facing a speed bump in life and hopefully won't be expecting the easy way out to become the norm.
