I was reading today about the murder of Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens. He was a brave and skillful diplomat who risked, and ultimately lost his life for this country. What a huge loss.
As I read the New York Times report, I also thought back to the men and women who lost their lives on 9/11, particularly so many who acted heroically on that day.
After almost 2,000 years, it’s still hard to beat the simple words of John 15:13: There is no greater love than this, that a man would lay down his life for his friends.
