MEET A HERO!







The following information was taken from a post and comments in the weirdjews Live Journal community.


An Israeli lecturer who died in the massacre at Virginia Tech who saved the lives
of several students by blocking the doorway of his classroom from the approaching
gunman before he was fatally shot.



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, an engineering science and mathematics lecturer in 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.

"My father blocked the doorway with his body and asked the students to flee," Joe Librescu said in a telephone interview from his home outside of Tel Aviv. "Students started opening windows and jumping out."





May his memory be a blessing
and
May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
