Fearless Photojournalist Margaret Moth Dies March 21, 2010
Susan notes: I'm deeply saddened by the death yesterday of one of my heroines, war zone journalist and camerawoman Margaret Moth. She was an amazing woman in every sense of the world. I am grateful for her life so fully lived.
See the three-part CNN docuentatry video of her life here: Margaret Moth (Journalist/Camerawoman); and my September 2009 blog on her story here: The Margaret Moth Story: FEARLESS (or: A Heroine Just Walked Into My Life).
