Sept. 11th: "Greater Love Hath No Man...."

(click image to enlarge)

One image that caught our eye today, is from the National Firearms Museum. Officer Walter Weaver was assigned to the Emergency Services Unit of the NYPD. The last time anyone ever saw him was on the morning of Sept. 11th 2001, on the 6th floor of the World Trade Center's North Tower. Officer Weaver was attempting to free passengers trapped inside of an elevator. He gave his life trying to save them. His remains were never found, but his Smith and Wesson .38 snub nose revolver, which was his backup sidearm, was recovered from the site.
Officer Weaver's family donated the revolver to the National Firearms Museum, where it is displayed with honor and appreciation for his sacrifice. 

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."--- John 15:13
