Inspiring Sacrifice


American Crusader has shared the information about the professor who sacrificed his life for his students yesterday. The professor was a Holocaust Survivor,and gave his life on the day set aside to remember the holocaust. Read this for more background information.

I am sorry for his loss and for the pain his family must feel today, but, it renews a hope in me to know men like this still exist in this day and age. What a hero!

A True hero---not in the spotlight as many "would be heroes"....nor ringing his bell or trumpeting his cause, but a true leader in the lives of our young people....

He will be missed by many I am sure!!

Anyone who is willing to lay down his/her life for another is a hero. I am thankful for those that are selfless and remind us what life is really about.... serving others in ways that we would never imagine life altering.
I pray that those in his class realize the love this man had in his heart, not just for his students but for Jesus, the ultimate hero.

Wow he survived something so tragic as the Holocaust. Then he dies in a tragic event. We should all pray for his family.

Hope you'll be sure and read my post on A Night To Honor Israel. What a hero indeed.

I read about him this morning. It's been heartbreaking to hear the things coming out of this, but here is something bittersweet-a man who loved others!

Jungle Mama: Professor Liviu Librescu, was a true man of honor and I might add, a man of God, even though I did not know him personnaly.

As a nation, we must get back to God and the moral values that our country was founded on or we will only face even more and possibly worse episodes of the violence.

How is your dad doing?

Wes and I consider him a hero! He is an inspiration, and I hope that the rest of the world recognizes what a true man he was.

Bless his heart!! You mentioned him to me on the phone tonight, and I had to honestly tell you I hadn't heard a peep about him today on the news. Of course, I didn't watch news all day long, but I did watch it off and on for many hours. I should have seen this hero plastered everywhere!! I did finally hear a small blurb about him late tonight.

I do hope he knew Christ as Lord and Savior!

I was not aware of his nationality until I read our Atlanta Journal & Constitution website and it said so. I'm sorry to hear about his death. They had a very nice write-up about him and some of the other victims as well.

Rebecca said...

It is ironic to me the life he lived, the way he died. A holocost survivor gives his life that others might live. 2000 years ago another Jewish man did that. But He rose again!

I heard about this man while we were at campmeeting. I wonder if he will be remembered more than the gunman? I hope so.
