Here's a moral question for you. This is an imaginary situation, but I
think you will find it beneficial to think through this exercise. The
situation: You are in the Middle East, and there is a huge flood in
progress. Many homes have been lost, water supplies compromised and
structures destroyed.You're a freelance photographer for a news service,
you're traveling alone, looking for particularly poignant scenes that you
can shoot. You come across Osama Bin Laden who has been swept away by the
floodwaters. He is barely hanging on to a tree limb and is about to go
under.You have to make a choice. You can either put down your camera and
save him, or take a Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of him as he loses
his grip on the limb. So, here's the question...and think carefully before
you
answer it: because your answer is very important as to the kind of person
you are
