I can't think of another public event, since the two people jumping out of the twin towers hand in hand, that made me want to cry. But this one did. http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=2531138&page=1.
So ask yourself - am I raising my children to have that much courage and selflessness? Do I have it myself? Am I raising my children to love their neighbor as they love themselves? If not, why not?
No, me neither. But we should be looking to learn what they know and we do not. I pray no one else's children will ever need that kind of courage - but wouldn't you want your children to have it, in the terrible event it were necessary.
If you pray, pray for their families.
