"This is my commandment that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12. I wear a ring with that inscription. The next verse in 13 tells us, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down his life for his friends." This reminds me of what my uncle, Hank Pollreis, wrote to my mother, Ida, "I am going to fight for you and your children." He did in World War II when he died as a paratrooper in New Guinea.
