In Israel today at Ra'anana, Professor Liviu Librescu was laid to rest. The place of his birth, Romania, presented his widow Marlena with the Order of the Star of Romania for his bravery on that fateful day in Blacksburg, VA.
"He was a very human person," his wife said. "He wanted to help everybody."
Indeed he did help everyone, to save his students and for the rest of us an example to live up to.
