"The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation." (On Liberty, by John Stuart Mill)

The future is being stolen away. Free and independent news media can take it back. Squelched by oppressive governments around the world, journalists are struggling. Not only are they concerned for their freedom in expressing their opinions, but they also fear for their lives. The previous decade saw 735 courageous journalists murdered worldwide for attempting to give the human race what it rightly deserves: the truth.

1) The journalists? death toll summary for the past decade
2) Press freedoms in the United States
3) Our response

Our freedom lies in the freedom of other countries. If we ignore the cries of those 735 murdered in the pursuit of free media, our own free and independent media hangs by a tenuous thread.
Free and independent news media is the weapon of the free world. Let's use it to bring about truth and honor?and, above all, freedom.
Let's finish what those 735 started.

An excellent tribute to the 735 journalists you mentioned. You have an eloquent writing style and have used it for a good cause.
