A lot of people say that they could sacrifice their lives for others, but in reality only a fraction of those people could actually do it.

I hate to admit it, but I would have probably been a selfish coward and ran away in this situation. People ought to be more honest with themselves about who they really are, because we are most definitely not all like him

u/TheLordofthething 7d ago

I'd very likely have run away, I have a very strong self preservation instinct. When the chips are down, it's me first.

u/WollyGog 7d ago

I'm a bit of everything; I freeze making a decision, but I want to help people the best way I can at the same time; I'm running the scenarios in my head. That can either mean guiding people away or going into the fray. In a situation like this, I'll never know unless it happens to me. I've got pretty good resolve though so if I know in my head there's no other way, I'm most likely walking towards the danger, with my insides screaming at me to run.

9

u/DanSanderman 7d ago

I think that freeze is pretty important though. I watched a situation unfold and I froze for a moment, but that freeze was me determining whether the situation was under control or not. Had I rushed in it may have complicated things, and the few seconds I hesitated I was able to determine that my presence wasn't necessary.

2

u/WollyGog 7d ago

I think it is, it's the part of you where rationale kicks in and tries to reason with instinct. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it doesn't.

3

u/annies_bdrm_skillet 7d ago

you summed it up pretty well

3

u/WollyGog 7d ago

Thanks, it's not easy at all to make decisions like that, and a lot of the time, I don't think you're fully aware that a decision has been made, you're just doing what feels right at the time. And that doesn't necessarily mean you're going to see the end of it.

This kid could've been scared out of his wits, but his entire self betrayed him and insisted on going in for the fight. Either way, he's a hero.

2

u/Shadowpriest 7d ago

I'm pretty much the same as my brain keeps going off on constant mental evaluations and trying to figure things out or look for best/worst/alternative solutions. By all means the natural instinct of flight or fight is definitely in me so it'll all have to depend on what's going on in my personal life and what situation I'm in that would cause me to freeze, run, or jump in.

2

u/WollyGog 7d ago

Exactly, fight or flight isn't absolute, it's a shit load of mini decisions based on who we are and what's going on in our lives.

u/KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ 7d ago

We can only hope we will never encounter the circunstances where we need to find out.

u/dxrey65 7d ago

Very true; it's easy to imagine beign the hero, but then when it comes down to it, you don't know until you're in the situation.

Closest I ever was involved a car crash; an older guy coming the other way on a 2-lane highway at dawn. He started to swerve as he passed and I watched the car flip and spin in my rearview, landing on it's roof in a ditch. I stopped and walked back toward it, shaking a bit imagining some gruesome bloody mess.

Meanwhile another car did a u-turn and stopped, a soldier-looking guy jumped out and ran full-sprint to the car, pulled out a Leatherman tool and shimmied through the broken window, checking the driver's neck then cutting the seatbelt and pulling him free. Turns out he was just heading home from a night-shift at a nearby military base.

Needless to say, he had the situation handled. The driver had a little dog that had been thrown free and was terrified, so I found a towel and bundled the dog up and held him. Pretty sure the guy was ok; he thanked me for helping with the dog once the ambulance got there.

3

u/CartoonJustice 7d ago

Seems like you found a way to help in a crises and helped a person and animal in destress. I can't imagine coming too after an accident and not being able to find my dog, I'd be forever grateful to the two of you for very different reasons.

If what you said was true, we’d have millions of heros every year. Most people will save themselves. You see it even in silly subway brawls, let alone confronting a lunatic suicide bomber.

This kid was far braver than any of us commenting, and probably understood a decent amount of the risk.

15

u/parttimeamerican 7d ago

100% this

I've told a woman shaking like a leaf that I bet the gun(revolver) isn't even loaded cause I could see all empty chambers

Sure as shit wasn't unloaded for long...I didn't remotely consider the possibility I may have died till days later

I just turned around and walked away after some heated debate,I had a steel plate in my backpack but it looked like it'd already taken a .22 and this was point blanc....though she was shaking idk

11

u/thewonderfulpooper 7d ago

I don't get it. A woman shot you?

2

u/parttimeamerican 7d ago

No she pointed it at me threatening to shoot because I wouldn't leave....the back yard of the house I was living in at the time

I wasn't exactly in a position to call cops and that wasn't really a thing you wanted to be known for in my position at the time

Even said you're shaking like a leaf I bet you don't even hit me and you know what I would probably have been right even at 5 6-ft but FUCK man why did I say that

THEN GET HER TO LOAD IT, the actual real worst part of all this was I know how she obtained the weapon.. I watched someone go to try trick it off and he lifted his wife band to show he had the weapon as promised, the other dude literally reached out and grabbed it and before anyone could blink sprinted right out the door

Up until my blunder, that gun was not even loaded and to be honest at the range we were talking there is a very decent chance that I could have got it off her even if it was loaded with maybe one shot fired to my my left in the air as I took control of the weapon.

2

u/thewonderfulpooper 7d ago

So she didn't shoot you?

2

u/parttimeamerican 7d ago edited 7d ago

No ,I got shot at another time around this time of my life though so I was standing on a street corner under a street lamp repacking my back and a man walked out from a house nearby

He asked me "you straight? "(As in are you good for those who are not American English like myself who is British, this was in Oklahoma)

I wasn't entirely sure what he was asking because I thought there was two options he was either asking are you good but considering how gay he looked (not a joke he looked very gay like his hair his makeup)

Anyway I just say yeah yeah because I figure that respond to both queries in a non-committal way and then also say good luck which could also mean good luck out there are wherever you're going or good luck on your cruise for dick

He took offence to it still I backed off open my arms and a very clearly passive non aggressive posture, he accused me of trying to pull on him extremely aggressively advancing and I didn't realise what he meant at first so I go "pull what my dick?"and honestly I probably would have said the same thing if I knew anyway

At this point my backpack is behind him and and he said some shit just turned around and walked off however as he does so he kicked my bag not knowing it was literally filled with lead acid batteries heavy power tools and I believe an actual brick (pranked, someone put it in the very bottom didn't notice all day) not to mention the aforementioned steel plate

So when he kicks it instead of it flying off like he expected you fucking trips the B barely moves and as he is tripping he wheels around pulls his weapon and fires at me

It was some bullshit custom flashy desert eagle, his girlfriend I guess came out of the house (he immediately ran off) apologising saying he's not normally like this hes not even high (x to doubt)

I just asked her to grab me the car battery that I put down on the pavement while I put my backpack on and I fuck off as well in a different direction

Later on a few months I find out that he had a had an argument with his girlfriend in which he lost so he stormed out the house and I happened to be a convenient target, I saw him another time actually he had a group of people with him as did I so I just waved and shouted "hey it's you the dude who shot at me!" In a really friendly voice

Then proceeded to continue walking and talking with my friends

Yeah, there's no chance I'm dying for a bunch of strangers (depends on the number I guess; I might die to save 1 million people). I would die for my family and maybe a couple of very close friends but I'm sprinting away while yelling "bomber incoming" in this scenario.

5

u/Marlonius 7d ago

It's different when they're not a stranger, but someone you've spent everyday with for the last few years. Even if it's someone you don't like, pack bonding is strong. Even when you have no attachment to the people around you, most people will try to prevent harm to others even at great personal cost. It's hardwired indoors, attack the leopard eating the children so it does not eat your children as well.

4

u/Funfruits77 7d ago

They weren’t strangers to him. They were his friends, classmates, and teachers he most likely valued those people as much as you value your family. This young man was a hero and I hope to have his resolve and courage should I ever find myself in a similar situation.

10

u/Minitell 7d ago

This perfectly sums up how I feel too, there's absolutely no way I could do what this kid did, some people are just built different.

Like you I think I would die to save my immediate family and thats it, I would not die for any number of strangers. I would literally rather live myself than save a billion strangers. We all only get 1 life, there is no afterlife, I am not throwing mine away for strangers.

Compared to him I am an absolute coward and he is a hero that I could never be.

I don’t think there’s any shame in this. As a father, I ask myself what I’d want my daughter do…and it’s get as far away from that bomb as she can.

Even as an adult if I’m in this situation I’m getting a safe distance from the bomber while trying to talk them down and alerting the others to evacuate / calling 911.

Only difference would be if my own daughter is in that school, in which case I’m running into the school to get my daughter outta there while trying to evacuate others but prioritizing getting my daughter right up outta dodge ASAP

u/Enchilada_McMustang 7d ago

From his wiki:

On 6 January 2014, Aitzaz was outside the school gate of his Government High School, Ibrahimzai, in Hangu, with two other schoolmates. Aitzaz had not been allowed to attend the morning assembly due to his tardiness that day. One account states that around this time a 20-to-25-year-old man approached the gate and stated he was there to "take admission". One of the students noticed a detonator on the man's vest, whereupon Aitzaz's schoolmates ran inside, possibly to raise the alarm, while Aitzaz confronted the suicide bomber, who then detonated his vest.[9]

A normal tardy kid turned hero.

now I might be fucking stoned right now, but I came across this story a while ago a coldheartedly told myself "so what" ... but this time I think I can truly fathom those words...

The school was renamed in honor of him too

He was just a boy. A boy who made such a selfless decision. He’d be a man now if he lived but he is forever a boy. Let’s not forget that please. Based on other things I read about him bear hugging the bomber, I wonder if he knew that his size and height would block most of the explosion.. If so, he did so knowing that his death would be his classmate’s and teacher’s salvation.

I like the way the post calls him a man.

He was 15 years old...but sacrificing yourself to save others is a manly thing to do alright.

If only we were all as much of a man as he was.

Nice one Aitzaz 🙏

u/Antares777 7d ago

He’s just a boy. Not a man. The sacrifice he made is that much more tragic and meaningful, because of his young age.

Ya know, this is one of the very few reposts that I don’t mind seeing over and over again on the front page.

It never fails to inspire me that this boy, only 15 years old, in the few short seconds he had in thinking, decided to be so brave and selfless.

What a legend.

u/randominternetnormie 7d ago

A hero and a legend. Hope his story lives on

u/Key_Possibility_9497 7d ago

Even though I don't live there or go to the school. Thank you for sacrificing your life for others. Because it's true that only a fraction of people can do it. And at least he died by being a hero. Rest in peace.

I don’t care what religion you believe in… if an afterlife exists. He’ll be there.

I wouldn't do that. I'll never save someone.

But... why did they draw him with slightly more Caucasian features... just post a pic of him as he is.

u/godzillahavinastroke 7d ago

I found him. It's Chad thundercock. Truly the biggest Chad out here. Laying down his life for thousands of others.

Before I read the text I thought it was Chris Pratt in his new role, after I looked at the first photo.

True boss.

u/reidlieb 7d ago

Looks like we've got yet another karma farmer that reposts previously popular stuff.

Edit: Sad that the assholes that are slowly destroying reddit for internet points are getting support instead of those working to call them out.

So sad that some Muslims want to kill other Muslims for being the wrong kind of Muslims.

I forgot suicide bomber is just another job that anyone has, and is not religiously motivated at all. My next door neighbor, mr O'Brian is a suicide bomber on Mondays through Wednesdays. Thursday's and Fridays he's working part time in the local IED factory. And Mrs Patel down the street was a suicide bomber for 30 years before retiring. Totally forgot about that.

And the 1400 year long feud between Shiites and Sunnis never happened either. My bad.

This is beautiful unintentional art.

Some of the things I love:

  • the FB page format

  • the disgusting border and random coloured text style, highlighting nearly everything in the text, as if we wouldn't notice that "sacrificed his life" was important without it being bold and blue

  • the 7 levels of JPEG on the images they chose to use, one even having a god awful and disrespectful filter

  • the actual text they wrote, so devoid of actual content and developed from other shit they read

  • the fact it's from like a decade ago but they're talking about it like it happened yesterday

  • and finally, the 17 levels of JPEG that's happened to this image itself as it gets reposted around the internet, for it to now finally find itself reposted on some normie default sub, with enlightened Ledditors making wholesome comments about what a heckin' hero he is and jerking each other off about it

I wish you all could see past your heckin' wholesomeness and understand how fucking embarrassing circlejerks like this are. Some of this stuff puts 9gag to shame.
