James Foley Remembered Through His Journalism, Not His Beheading Or His Orange Jumpsuit

James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by ISIS militants, was an exceptionally brave reporter who went into a conflict zone that has less than a handful of Western journalists still operating.

Since the video of his beheading appeared online, two years after his capture in Syria, social media users have been urging others not to share the video, and to INSTEAD share examples of Foley's journalism for Global Post and AFP, using the hashtag #ISISMediaBlackout.

One of the most moving examples being shared is one of Foley's last dispatches from Aleppo, written for Global Post.

Here are two of the stories that saw Foley venture into the most hostile environments on Earth, in order to tell the human cost of conflict.

Here are a collection of videos of Foley, talking about conflict zones, the situation in the Middle East and his previous capture in Libya, that people are being urged to share, instead of the one that shows the last moments of his life.
