True heroism

An unparalleled act of heroism and regard for others.

Professor Liviu Librescu, 76, threw himself in front of the shooter when the man attempted to enter his classroom. The Israeli mechanics and engineering lecturer was shot to death, “but all the students lived – because of him,” Virginia Tech student Asael Arad – also an Israeli – told Army Radio.

May Professor Librescu rest is peace. Our sympathy goes to his family.
