You Know How James Foley Died. This Is How He Lived.

When we think of James Wright Foley now, one image is seared into our collective memory: a screenshot from a video, a prisoner on the verge of death. It’s a horrifying picture, the final scene in Foley’s tragic journey from documenting war to becoming its victim. So take a look at Foley’s life from childhood to his time reporting in the Middle East here. 

The Foley family requests that any donations be made to The James Foley Scholarship.

The BBC series toppled HBO’s “The Normal Heart” to win two acting accolades (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) and Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special. That puts it ahead of the six wins “Breaking Bad” saw.
