Are you talking about Peter? The tense moment between Peter and the mother of the baby reveals some important lessons about teamwork. The mother does not want Peter to give her baby daughter a sedative. However, Peter insists that the drugs are necessary to prevent the baby from crying. He knows that if the baby makes noise during an inspection, all of the refugees’ lives will be in danger. Although it might appear that that Peter is being rude to the young mother, he is actually taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the group.
