Such a sad, sad day.
A day that the world had marked as "holocaust memorial day", Liviu Librescu, a holocaust survivor, reportedly threw himself in front of the young gunman when he barged into Liviu's class. Mr Librescu was a professor of mechanics and enginieering at Virginia Tech.
There were apparently several other acts of bravery and honor.
Gunman: Cho Seung-Hui
A senior at Virginia Tech.
A 23-year-old South Korean resident alien who had a Centerville address.
So much heartache, created by one person. How could someone perform such a heinous crime and then take their own life? I cannot grasp the thought process that must have gone through this young man's mind. The pain... the grief... the agony that he has caused in the hearts of so many. As well as the pain and grief that he has caused his own parents.
Please take time to pray for the survivors and those that are left behind in the wake of such heinousness. They are ALL in much need of our prayers today and in the days to come.
