Joh*15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Actually, I don't think this verse applies here. The passengers of that plane knew they were going to die anyways. They could have said they didn't care and let the plane crash in DC - but they courageously took evasion action.
