Powerline covers the funeral of Liviu Librescu, the hero of Blacksburg. I find the remarks from his wife and family very moving. From his son:
According to Arie, his father "used every spare minute to do what he loved." Speaking of his father's teaching, Librescu said that "the courses in aerodynamics have ended. On the 16th of the month, you started a new career, teaching a new subject - heroism - [which] millions of students are learning."
