    It's always an easy question when you re-write it for personal convenience. (you answered only half of the question)

    yes dying to protect ones family is worthwhile but best to be avoided if possible.

    Dying for Country? Well that depends on if our country is actually at risk.
    But dying for oil or rubber or other american corporate foreign interests? for sure not worth it

    Worth?

    I don't know. Necessary, some times.

    The brief candle is still a wonder to burn.

    He was ask and answered the question, His answer being yes there was no second part to it. Only if you answer no is there a second part.

    I would die for my family, for my countrymen, for my country and yes I would die for my God. I would die to save innocents at risk as well.

    ouchie....i have a few questions...

    fast death...like bullet to the head...or slow death like burning alive?

    i got issues with the latter...

    my son, i dont know if i would die before da man...but i would gladly die with him....good or bad...its been nearly 30 years...he is as much as part of me...as i am of him...

    now why in the world would a proper goddess ask you to die for her?

    so what is with that?

    my country? i aint going anywhere else to die for my country i assure you of that...if i die for my country ...it will be on our soil...

    sunshine brings up the innocent....am i gonna let someone beat a kid while i am about...no....you never know when intervention can become a death threat...you just take your fucking chances
