Fastest Presidential answer to a citizen request


[May 17] <b>Fastest Presidential answer to a citizen request</b>

Miami, FL, US / (Press Release) The record for the World&#39;s "Fastest Presidential answer to a citizen request" has just been accepted by the World Records Academy.

The new record holder is President Traian Basescu (Romania), who promptly answered to an emergency citizen request on April 18 and has issued in less than two hours a Presidential Decree conferring of the National Order „The Star of Romania" to Mr. Professor Liviu Librescu.

Also as requested, two days later, in Israel, a special envoy of the Romanian president presented to his widow and two sons the Star of Romania medal in recognition of his courage and contribution to science.

Romanian born Professor Liviu Librescu is the hero <i>"who, at the cost of his own life, saved the lives of his students during the massacre at Virginia Tech."</i> -according to <a href="">Jewish War veterans of the USA</a>.

The Certificate for this new world record will reach President Basescu during the next days and his record will be listed in the 2008 edition of the World Records Book, the official publication of the World Records Academy.

"The main point of this story which convinced us to recognize this somehow unusual (but very human-appealling) world record was that a President which knew he has only few hours left before being suspended by the Parliament, a President which has to approve and sign <a href="">tons of documents</a> during his last few hours as President, left everything behind -as requested by an ordinary citizen (a 23 years old girl, a marketing student!)- and did what a President always has to do in the first instance: served his Country, above anything else, even above his own personal political problems", said Tom Howard, Head of Records for World Records Academy. He also added "We all have dreamed about changing the World in better, some still hopes, aren&#39;t we? If the young generation still has this dream, it&#39;s encouraging, especially when somebody like...a President, does fulfill their dreams."

"It&#39;s kind of &#39;<a href="">It could happen to you</a>&#39; story, but this time it wasn&#39;t anything material involved, only the noble desire to pay respects to a Hero, and pay them on time! In that movie, during the evening before loosing their restaurant, the goodhearted couple still have the patience and heart to open their cafe and handle a last bowl of soup to a street man (an undercover journalist). This time, possibly being just a-step-to-his-career&#39;s end, a President left everything behind and did a notable gesture."

"No wonder why this President has become so popular among regular citizens in his country, Romania, and why the younger generation widely supports him: if you write a message (in a matter of National Interest) to a President and he do what he was asked to do, simply because the request was right, that&#39;s the President I think anybody would LOVE to have!"
