I have told my kid many times not to freeze in an emergency - to respond, not to hold her breath, to evaluate the situation around her, and that sometimes you may just have to save yourself.
It's a hard thing to teach. Company Response Options is trying to teach schools - student and teacher - to avoid the deer in the headlights reaction and instead to rush the gunman. Brings to my mind Flight 93. They reacted, they rushed the terrorists, they did not do what they were told thus they saved many lives and in a way they saved themselves. They were killed but they fought for their lives with everything they had available. Hero's.
Would I want my kid to do the same? Yes.
To fight for her own life? Hell yes.
Her life is extremely valuable - priceless and definitely worth fighting for.
