Tragedy at Virginia Tech

To state the obvious, the tragedy at VT is devastating. During the past 36 hours since I learned of the shootings my mind returns frequently to the students, faculty, staff, parents and community of VT.

Within the horror there is heroism - the many people who risked or lost their lives to save others. For example, Dr. Liviu Librescu who put himself between his students and the gunman, giving the students time to flee out the window. He was killed. Dr. Librescu knew horror, for he was a Holocaust survivor and had lived in Ceaucescu's Romania. He was also an Israeli citizen and brilliant researcher. Read about his story in the Jerusalem Post.

May the Holy One bring healing to those recovering from injury, comfort to those in mourning and wisdom to us all.
