Tragedies sometimes make heroes of those you would least suspect — Liviu Librescu saved some students of his class at Virginia Tech by holding the door against Seung Hui Cho, while his Students jumped out the window. He died to gunshots from Seung.
Liviu Librescu, professor from Israel, holocaust survivor, and a good man: may you rest in peace with our deep and ever-abiding respect.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of G-d, I will do.
Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909)
