Grieving the Life of My Son, Freelance Journalist James Foley
Diane Foley, mother of American freelance journalist James Foley, speaks with Meghan on today’s podcast about her journey of recovery after her son was taken hostage for over two years before eventually dying at the hands of his captors.
It’s hard to imagine a more heartbreaking tragedy than the loss of one’s child, but Diane Foley epitomizes strength and resilience in the face of unthinkable grief. Having endured unimaginable emotional trauma, she has emerged as an advocate for others who suffer similar losses.
As someone living far away from the front lines of war, I’ve often wondered how ordinary people find the courage to carry on after losing a child to violence—never realizing that I might someday be asking that very question. If you’re curious about the answer to this question, I strongly urge you to listen to Diane’s interview.
