Liviu Librescu was an engineering professor at Virginia Tech. He held the classroom door closed as his students rushed out through the windows. He also never walked out of Norris Hall.
Yesterday was a very sad day for so many people. While the horrible actions of a very selfish, warped individual were revealed, some amazingly brave and brilliant people were erased from our world.
This really struck home. Just a year ago, I was attending engineering courses with fellow friends. It is terribly sickening that someone would commit such a heinous act. Every time I read something about this, my throat chokes up. It's absolutely crazy... My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones.
