All of that was a long time ago. While, unfortunately, I’ve haven’t been back to Cairo since that short visit, for my foreign- journalist brother, Cairo has become a home away from home. Terrorism and extremist violence is heartbreaking no matter where it happens, but for the past couple of years, terrorist attacks in Egypt feel more personal in nature. The attacks on Egyptian churches in recent days have been particularly upsetting. We’re proud of Jake for writing powerful pieces and doing important work. In a manner reminiscent of soldiers, we’ve come to accept that foreign-journalists believe in what they are doing, understand the risks involved, and are prepared to make sacrifices in order to do their work. Yet we ask our friends and family members in these dangerous fields to understand that there are times when we who love them wish that these risks could be borne by someone else. Admittedly it’s not a mature or altruistic sentiment, but at least it’s honest.
