German photographer Anja Neidringhaus was killed in an attack in Afghanistan, just before the Presidential elections to be held tomorrow.
Her work is incredible.
Journalists and Photojournalist who cover conflict areas and unsafe zones, risk their lives to share their information with the world.

More on the campaign to expunge Israel from FIFA:
How can I laud FIFA for striking down a law that should have never been implemented in the first place? Being ripped from the game because a lot of white, privileged men decided it was dangerous for me and the sport was torturous. Football is for all…
Huffington Post picked up this piece that I had initially posted on this blog.
It resonated with some people.

Dream come true. Really.
