A Dagger For My Heart

A soldier jumped on top of a grenade that was tossed at his squad. Sacrifice. His flesh and bones were ripped apart in a gruesome manner. A fountain of blood and body parts flew up into the air and rained down on each member of his squad, like some sort of strange baptism. A baptism because the soldier saved everyone in his squad.

Sacrifice. I think it to be a noble cause and almost always the right move. But I wonder if everyone decided to sacrifice something to make the world a better place...I wonder if it would ironically turn the world into a hell hole. If everyone is sacrificing, nothing would get done. We'd all be fighting each other to be the one to jump on the grenade, and in the end would destroy everyone.

So in the big picture, is sacrifice good or bad?
