Greater love hath no man than this

That a man lay down his life for his friends. 

There is no good story that can come out of such a tragedy, but there can be inspiring ones.  Such as this story of Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz.  He heard the sound of gunfire at the Tree of Life synagogue and rushed to the sound of the carnage.  That is, he rushed toward danger for those he knew and loved.  Tragically, he lost his life. 

May God bless and embrace this man who was willing to risk and lose his own life for the benefit of others, one of the greatest proofs of the divine spark in the human existence.  May we all look at him and his example and not become part of the problem that underpins such human suffering. 

"I shall lift up the cup of salvation
And call upon the name of the LORD"  Psalm 116:13
