Above and Beyond: Greater Love...

This image, printed in New York magazine, shows the South Tower being hit by terrorists just minutes after the North Tower was attacked on September 11,  2001.

I was reminded yesterday of September 11, 2001.  I'm sure most of you can remember right where you were that day when terrorists hit the World Trade Center, changing New York's skyline forever.

As the Twin Towers were hit, firefighters from all over the city, and eventually all over the country, responded.  Many of these great people, whether on duty or not, chose to go "above and beyond" and came to help in the aid of their fellow man.  343 firefighters, who initially came to the call, sacrificed their life that day as they tried to rescue those in need. 

This indescribable act of service makes my heart swell as I realize their bravery and love for others came before thoughts of their own lives.

John 15:13 in the Bible tells us, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  I know that love for others will be blessed by great rewards in the life to come. 

Firefighters worked 24/7 to help rescue those trapped after the Twin Towers collapsed following a terrorist attack in 2001.  This picture was originally published in New York magazine.
