President Bush pays tribute to the Memory and Courage of Liviu Librescu

President Bush spoke about Romanian born Hero Liviu Librescu
WASHINGTON / April 18 President George W. Bush has visited today the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. During his speech he mentioned the Romanian born Hero Liviu Librescu:
"Our flags fly at half-mast in memory of 32 souls whose lives were taken at Virginia Tech on Monday morning. That day we saw horror, but we also saw acts of quiet courage. We saw this courage in a teacher named Liviu Librescu. With the gunman set to enter his class, this brave professor blocked the door with his body while his students fled to safety. On the Day of Remembrance, this Holocaust survivor gave his own life so that others might live. And this morning we honor his memory, and we take strength from his example."
