JOURNALISTS IN WAR

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day - fun to show a shamrock or cute leprechaun, mention famous writers from the Emerald Isle, but this is not an ordinary March. With war in Ukraine, with journalists and photographers being wounded and killed, I am compelled to honor these brave men and women on the front lines of this terrible conflict. From Claire Hollingworth, English journalist and author, the first war correspondent to report the outbreak of World War II, described as "the scoop of the century", American Martha Gellhorn, Margaret Bourke White, iconic photographer in WWII, to Ernie Pyle, embedded with average GI's, beloved worldwide and killed in Okinawa. John Steinbeck, Edward R. Morrow - the list is long and growing. At least three have been killed so far, including Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra "Sasha" Kuvshynova, killed in an attack near Kyiv. More have been injured... Journalists, reporters, WRITERS, have a powerful tool to bring us news, keep us informed, make us aware, painfully at times, to what is happening in the world. I cannot imagine the world without them. May this end soon, and Ukraine prevail. Be well, be safe.
