Petition for Professor Liviu Librescu (deceased), of Virginia Tech, to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
As the entire world knows of the tragedy on April 16, 2007 in Blacksburg, VA, we want the innocent victims to be remembered through the bravery of the American spirit represented by Professor Liviu Librescu.
On that tragic day, when faced with a killer on a rampage, Professor Librescu blocked the doorway of his classroom in Norris Hall at Virginia Tech, to protect his students. His selfless actions saved many lives. He is the true definition of a hero and the nation should remember that as his legacy.
