Last Thanksgiving, reporter James Foley was kidnapped in Syria and has not been heard from since. The one year anniversary passed last week on November 22, but in case you missed it, now that you have some downtime you should follow-up on his story.
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, over 30 journalists are missing in Syria this year. Worldwide, 17 journlists have lost their lives. While you’re giving thanks this season, keep our colleagues in mind. If you want to help, you can always support the CPJ here.
