Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

While trying to retrieve a living plant, Dr. Ross endangers the lives of a squadron of soldiers. Her attitude after the incident is anything but remorseful. Do you think she was justified in her attitude? What about people who get into trouble when participating in extreme activities, thereby endangering the lives of those enlisted to rescue them?
