The Journalists Memorial for Memorial Day

slideshow6.jpg

Journalists tend to write only about the military as serving their country and losing their lives. So in the interest of the dreaded “naval gazing” by the press above is a picture of the Journalists Memorial at the Newseum in Washington DC.

[P]ays tribute to reporters, photographers and broadcasters who have died reporting the news. The names of 2,007 individuals from around the world are etched on the glass panels of the soaring, two-story structure.

And just in the last 24 hours news of reporter Anibal Archila died from a volcanic eruption in Guatemala.

Our thanks to all who serve in the name of telling the story.
