Truly not enough has been written about the unbelievable press conference held yesterday by the parents of James Foley, the freelance journalist who was beheaded by ISIS terrorists. John and Diane Foley spoke to reporters for over a half hour outside their home in Rochester, New Hampshire. One cannot possibly fathom the pain they’re feeling right now, yet this family demonstrated the utmost in class, as they celebrated the life of their son in the darkest of circumstances.
“We just pray that Jim’s death can bring our country together in a stronger way,” said Diane.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am absolutely shocked at how well they were able to hold it together, as they profusely thanked others for their thoughts and prayers, and shared as many positive memories of James that they could think of. Diane alone is one tough mother.
I’ve decided to link the entire news conference up above, since many people have not seen it in its entirety, and it definitely deserves to be shared.
In addition, you can watch a 2011 O’Reilly Factor interview with James here to get a better sense of the kind of guy he was:
Rest in peace, James Foley.
