Your neighbors wife is killed in the explosion, along with several other people. What do you do? You go to the basement on your easy lift chair and go to your old army chest and find your rifle. You also look for some food and water. You gear up and invade your neighbor who launched the fireworks house. You take over his home by force. > You take Over His Home by Force You grab your gun from the basement. You start walking towards your neighbor. Your neighbors wife is dead, along with many others. You don't care anymore, you just want revenge. You call your old war buddies on the phone and tell them "It's time to go to war.". They all agree and you head out to the front door. You stand there holding your pistol ready. You see your neighbor coming down the stairs. He sees you and raises his hands as if surrendering. He calls out to you "Hello my friend, it's me again. I'm sorry for what happened last time, but we're not enemies any more". Your neighbor says "We are not enemies anymore Mr Horkowitz! Please let me live!" > You shoot him! He looks like he wants to say something else but he can't get out the words. "I'll give you anything you want...just let me live..". You fire your pistol at him. Bullets hit him right in the face. The bullets tear through his face and into his brain causing him to fall backwards onto the floor. You feel conflict inside you. Was killing him the right thing to do? Or was this wrong?
