Description

Joseph (Joe) Librescu, the son of Liviu Librescu, the teacher who protected his students at the cost of his own life in the Virgina Tech killing spree yesterday, sent a heart-felt message to all Hotnews.ro readers.<br />
"I am professor Librescu&#39;s son and I want to thank all those who wrote such beautiful notes about him", the letter reads.

"Even though he left the country for a long time, he never forgot its beauty. We were supposed to meet in Predeal this summer, for a family reunion.

Once again I want to thank you for all the beautiful things you wrote about him".

Professor Liviu Librescu&#39;s gesture was widely commented on in the Romanian and international media.

First announced on the <a href="http://www.esm.vt.edu/">Virginia Tech official site</A>, the story soon reached the <a href="http://english.hotnews.ro/International-media-honors-Romanian-born-professor-killed-in-Virginia-massacre-articol_44738.htm"">HotNews.ro English version</A>, and was quoted by the blogs at the <a href="http://www.claremont.org/blogs/blogid.5193/blog_detail.asp">Claremont Institute for the Study of Statemanship and Political Philosphy</A>.

An <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/17/AR2007041700626.html?nav=hcmodule">Associated Press</A> article was almost instantly quoted by all international media. <a href="http://edition.cnn.com/2007/US/04/17/vtech.shooting.victims/index.html">CNN</A>, <a href="http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article1665503.ece">The Times</A>, <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/17/us/17victims.html?_r=1&oref=slogin">The New York Times</A> and <a href="http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/849070.html">Haaretz</A> are just a few of the TV stations and newspapers that brought an hommage to the lost professor.

Romanian media ware just as present as the international ones:<br />
"Romanian hero in mourning America", <a href="http://www.evz.ro/">Evenimentul Zilei</A> reads on the first page; "The Hero", is the simple and powerful title in <a href="http://www.jurnalul.ro/articol_76983/eroul.html">Jurnalul National</A>. "Romanian hero at Virginia Tech", reads <a href="http://www.cotidianul.ro/">Cotidianul</A>. "Romania origin hero", is the headline in <a href="http://www.romanialibera.ro/a92706/un-erou-originar-din-romania.html">Romania Libera</A> and so on.
