PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REBLOG THIS.
I don’t think I’ve ever asked anyone to sign a petition before, but I’m imploring you to sign this one. Journalist Steve Sotloff is an American Citizen and reporter with Time Magazine, and a friend of my family. He went missing in August of 2013, and is now being held by #ISIS. He was show in the execution video of #JamesFoley.
There has been a lot of talk about the bravery of journalists in #Ferguson, and they deserve to be commended for getting out from behind their desks and blogs. But there is a huge difference between tear gas and rubber bullets and being beheaded.
I’ve already lost one journalist I knew - Tim Hetherington (who directed the documentary Restrepo along with Sebastian Junger). He helped Paul Azaceta and I with research for GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES before being killed in Libya. I don’t want to lose another.
Clicking on the link below will allow you to sign a petition asking The White House to do everything in its power to free Steve. It would mean a lot to me and my family, not to mention his, if you would sign the petition and share this Facebook post.
Thanks for your time and attention.
