Amidst all the speculation and second guessing Fox News is broadcasting, they ran something from Virginia Tech that I hope turns out true.
In Norris Hall a professor held the classroom door closed while students escaped out windows. On the other side of the door was the killer. The professor was killed but the students did get out. The story says the professor was a Holocaust survivor and yesterday in Israel was Holocaust Memorial Day.
I wish I could have known this professor who willingly ran towards danger to save other lives. I am reminded of a Jewish proverb, "He who saves a life, saves a world." This professor saved many worlds yesterday. I hope this story turns out to be true.
Update - via Michelle Malkin: The professor in question was Liviu Librescu. He was 75 years old and came from Romania via Israel. He bodily blocked the gunman while his students escaped and paid for that bravery with his life.
