In dark moments, there are those among us who rise to the occasion and act with particular heroism. Prof. Liviu Librescu exemplifies this principle. His story should be spread far and wide.

Quoting Fox News via MC:

JERUSALEM — An Israeli lecturer who died in the massacre at a U.S. university saved the lives of several students by blocking the doorway of his classroom from the approaching gunman before he was fatally shot, his son said Tuesday.

Students of Liviu Librescu, 76, a holocaust survivor who was an engineering science and mathematics lecturer at Virginia Tech for 20 years, sent e-mails to his wife, Marlena, telling of how he blocked the gunman's way and saved their lives, said the son, Joe.

I agree 100%. This is what ABC should have fixated on. A "real" hero who's name should be remembered for his sacrifices.

Thank you for stopping by, Dean. Good observation.

This teacher needs to be remembered.

We look at the faces and think about what we have lost, soneone's husband, father, grandfather, the character, intelligence and what they contributed.

In recent years we look at them, too many of them. I think all of them: 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, VA Tech, Oklahoma City, Colombine & on and on, would want to be remembered for how they lived and not how they died.

Although we must not forget how they died, we can not continue to give the murderers their so called glorified million minutes of fame.
