We were shocked and saddened to hear of Anthony Shadid‘s untimely passing yesterday, at the age of 43, from an apparent asthma attack while on assignment in Syria. The fact that Anthony survived so much for the sake of his craft – including being shot in the West Bank in 2002 and captured by Libyan forces in 2011 – makes this loss particularly poignant and difficult. Anthony was one of the last true journalists, devoted to finding and sharing the truth, no matter the personal cost.
Looking back on the life and accomplishments of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anthony Shadid, we are grateful we got to know and work with such a remarkable human being. We encourage you to share your memories of Anthony in the comment section below.
