9/11 and the Meaning of Sacrifice

True sacrifice isn’t a marketing slogan, it’s the willingness to give your “last full measure” for someone else.  On this day seventeen years ago, we witnessed people choosing to sacrifice themselves for others. They were first-responders, law enforcement officers, service members, co-workers, and fellow plane passengers. Many things represent the American spirit, but none are more noble than self-sacrifice. I’m still proud to be an American (even with our imperfections) and give thanks every day that God chose to raise up this great nation.

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13 NKJV
