The best way we can honor the legacy of Hondros and Hetherington is to, first of all, pay attention to our world in the close-up and courageous way that they risked their lives for.


Teru Kuwayama has written a reflection on their deaths over at the Dart Center (and also talks about the complicating factor of Facebook when giving updates):


Tanya, thanks for sharing that Dart story. I feel conflicted about it ... On one hand, I think that time delay to tell families is crucial, and a show of profound respect for what families contribute to make it possible for journalists like these two to do their work. On the other hand, how is that even possible to control for these days? And, even, the quick-share of deaths and injuries like these might be crucial for ensuring that OTHER journalists in the area know what they need to do to keep themselves safe. Hmm. Still thinking on this...

Many Many Thanks for sharing This post you don't know but this article is really helpful for me kepp it up.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
