Don't let Foley's death be in vain

JAMES Foley represented an oft-derided profession which, in exponents such as him, unflinchingly risks its lives every day and in every corner of the world to expose the truth and expose evils for what they are.

By doing this, journalists like Foley make themselves an anathema to the murderous God-forsaken dissolutes who took his life.

His death will have served a purpose, because it will galvanise governments to act in order to protect others.

Thus, the loss of his life will very probably save those of tens of thousands of likewise-innocent people.

Let's not let him down.
