  1. It was a sad day for journalism and many journalists alike to see that a person who gives back so much of his time and knowledge to others would have his life cut short due to such an unecessary thing as an asthma attack. Since hearing of his passing I know i have tried to make myself more aware of the risks these journalists put themselves in just to give us the public the information we want to know, and often times it’s from locations that very few of us would ever go to. RIP Anthony Shadid

  2. What a loss for journalism. He died for journalism, and that in itself is good journalism. If he couldn’t get medical care because of his location, then it was for his job. He sounds like a great man!

  3. Great reflection, Yvette. Thanks for sharing that with us. You might also like to read President Betz’s blog post on Mr. Shadid here: http://blogs.uco.edu/president/2012/02/18/a-caring-insightful-journalist-and-teacher-is-lost/
