What would be your immediate response?

I saw these lines from J. Krishnamurti this morning.
(Note: Liberally translated from Indonesian)

Only one more hour to live
If you have one more hour to live, what would you do? Would you not take care of the worldly affairs that you need to take care of, your work, your will, etc? Aren’t you going to call your family and relatives and apologize to them on hurtful things that you may have done to them, and forgive them for all the hurtful things that they might have done to you?

Wouldn’t you want to completely die from everything that is in your interior, from all the desires and from the world? And if it can be done in one hour, certainly it can be done in days, in years before us .. Try and you shall see.”

(J. krishnamurti)

All I could think about when I read this was “I would run home to my family and stay there.”

Home. with my loved one(s).
