Let’s not give the murderer at the Virginia Tech school any more attention. The University, police, FBI, whoever else needs to investigate this incident and why this man was allowed to continue as a student after a lot of warning signs.

I’d like to think about the heroes. I’ve heard of two. I’m sure there are many more. In time their stories will be told. Zach Petkewicz and two other students held the doors to their classroom closed while the shooter was in the hallway. They heard him shooting and he even shot at the door that they were holding.

Liviu Librescu, a professor and Holocaust survivor barricaded his classroom doors until his students could escape. Then took the bullets meant for him. His son, living in Isreal hopes to meet the students who call his father a hero. This happened on The Holocaust Day of Remembrance. He will be remembered not only as a survivor but as a man who gave his life so others could live. What a legacy.

I’m saying a prayer for these people and for all of those that lost their lives in their prime, their friends and family. There but for the grace of God go I….

  1. Such a tragedy!

  2. What a great way to look at it. Highlight the heroes. I agree, too much publicity goes on about the bad person.

  3. It is almost poetic that he survived the Holocaust only to die saving his students on the very day of the remembrance of his survival.

  4. I havent written about any of it because of the attention factor. You have turned that around for good, though and I applaud you.

    Ditto, to what Ang. said, too.
