• Chris,
    I believe Leslie did a great job not only did she capture the emotional side of the story but the reality of the story as well. Despite being heartbroken herself she remained professional and did what she was supposed to do, her job. Her telling the part where the owner/worker could only talk about the blood stain gives me insight that maybe this person was also in shock or so overwhelmed with emotion that this was all he could focus on. Maybe if instead of just reporting 15 soldiers killed in Iraq the press could tell a little bit of how each person lived and who loved and cared about them (the emotion) and then tell how each one died (the reality) then maybe there would be a quicker end to this war. The emotionĀ in a story brings out the compassion so maybe the reality can help bring change.
