The Journalist . . . the Prophet-type

As an evangelical, I was taught the hate the liberal media. I won't go down that path. But this morning I was awaken to the news that another brave journalist (and photographer) died in the line of duty.  As I heard her colleagues describe her, Marie Colvin had a passion to get the truth out and to be the voice of those suffering.  In that way, she was doing God's work.

I think of the people of Homs, Syria and how we have no clue how much suffering is going on there . . . as I sit in peace and safety sipping my coffee.  Thanks to Marie and those like her, we knew a little bit of the evil unleashed on them.  Godspeed and thank you for your courage on the behalf of God's children who are suffering.
