In the wake of the killings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff at the hands of ISIS, read this column by TIME editor Nancy Gibbs on the role, necessity and dangers facing journalists in modern warfare.

"Decisionmaking in a democracy depends above all on knowledge, and not just the intel available to Presidents and policymakers. If we don’t have people on the ground, watching and working and reporting from inside these conflicts, we cannot understand and judge, as viewers, as voters, as citizens. But reporting up close has become ever more hazardous."

The only way to really cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is with balance and perspective. Olivier Laurent, Mikko Takkunen and I did our best here with our double-profile for TIME of two photographers who have spent weeks on both sides. I was thrilled to interview EPA's Oliver Weiken, who's been in Gaza, and Olivier got some great insight from Getty's Andrew Burton, who just returned from Israel. Their photos are undeniably compelling and very different but together they provide as full a picture as I can imagine of this brutal war.

Morning, from Newtown. It's my seventh day here since Dec. 14. Here's my mini-profile for TIME of Dylan Hockley, a Sandy Hook victim who was six-and-three-quarters, hated chocolate cake, loved his teachers and had his whole life ahead of him. Hope you'll read.

I wrote about the AP intern who died in Mexico City and how it's wrong to call him "aspiring" when he did so much.

Some of the most powerful words I've read all year. Marina Keegan, who had just graduated from Yale, wrote an incredibly moving piece about life after college. She died Saturday, at just 22. The world is remarkably cruel, but what an article to be remembered by. Please read, then share.

My piece today on The Atlantic about the differences within Occupy Wall Street. It's the culmination of five months of reporting and serves as my master's thesis at Columbia Journalism School. I hope you'll give it a read and leave feedback below!

Here's an article I wrote recently and pitched out but couldn't get picked up as fast as I needed the news to be out there. Instead, I self-published. I've received great responses and strong interaction with followers. Hope you enjoy and share as well.
