Baby out the window…

baby thrown out window

With his building engulfed in flames a man in Germany threw his nine-month old nephew out of his apartment window four-stories down to a police officer. The parents screamed for him not to do it. The toddler is doing fine, but five other children were killed in the blaze. (Full article and more photos)

Some leadership reflections on this…

– Are we willing to make choices that could cause the death of what we love?

– What does it take to be the one who acts when no one else is willing to?

– Are we willing to do what’s right contrary to what well-meaning people might be screaming?

– Are we willing to trust others, even strangers at times, with our decisions and the lives of our loved ones?

What else might we be able to learn from this?

    Dang. What a hard choice! I would like to think I could and would act in outrageous situations.

    A terrible event, but a seemingly courageous move from the Uncle.

    absolutely crazy move on the uncle’s part… it would be a whole different story if things didn’t work out…!
