Tim Hetherington and Geoffrey Dicker

I am literally sick to my stomach right now.  War photographer and co-director of the must see movie “Restrepo,” Tim Hetherington was killed today in an attack in Libya.  Many months ago, I attended a screening of “Restrepo” and though it was not an easy movie to watch, it was the most accurate depiction of war you’ll probably ever see.  In fact, I think the film should be taught in schools just to show impressionable youth how stupid war is.  I met Tim Hetherington after the movie was over and he was such a nice guy.  Please take a lesson from this tragic loss – WAR IS STUPID.  LIVES ARE LOST FOR NOTHING. KEEP THE PEACE.

RIP, Tim.  You will always be an inspiration to me.
