“An incredible ability to listen to and be present to people”

 

“An incredible ability to listen to and be present to people” – these are the words of Diane Foley, the mother of murdered journalist, James Foley, describing one of the qualities of her son to John Snow on Channel 4 News earlier this week.

 Diane and her husband John gave an extended interview to Jon Snow and in it described how their Faith (they are Catholics) was helping them to cope with their grief. They also spoke of how that same Faith was an inspiration in the life and work of their son whose chosen mission was to try, through his work as a journalist, to be a witness to the world of the untold suffering of the innocent in the mayhem in the Middle East.
