His memory WILL be a blessing

I'm on my lunch break. I just saw this item.

From the Jerusalem Post:

Israeli Professor Killed in US Shooting
"…a 75-year-old [Holocaust] survivor sacrificed his life to save his students in Monday's shooting at Virginia Tech college.
"Professor Liviu Librescu threw himself in front of the shooter, who had attempted to enter his classroom. The Israeli mechanics and engineering lecturer was shot to death, 'but all the students lived—because of him,' Virginia Tech student Asael Arad—also an Israeli—told Army Radio."

I'm somehow extra stunned by this bit of news, although I couldn't tell you why.
