My son-in-law Richard, whom some of you met at our Wisdom Weekend this past June, is leaving for Afghanistan Thursday for the third time. Since he works for the National Post in Toronto, he will be posting or blogging everyday about his trip. Needless to say, we all hold our breath when he is gone … but his stories and illustrations are tremendous and keeps us ‘in touch’. Although he is a great photographer, he is a truly amazing illustrator.
You can take a look at his first story, and all subsequent stories, from this trip by clicking on …http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/08/13/ever-wonder-what-an-artist-and-journalist-takes-to-war-it-starts-with-a-few-pencils/. He will be gone at least 6 weeks, so take a look from time to time at his work and stories. The thoughts may be just the thing that helps keep him safe.
