    There's a thread on the JT board, but it doesn't have his name in it.

    If this one stays up, please fix the misspellings of Tim's name and Libya in the original post.

    Absolutely tragic.

    His last tweet gave me chills when I saw others re-tweeting it after hearing he had been killed:

    Reminds me of the tweets that Declan Sullivan posted shortly before he was killed.

    Sebastian Junger's sendoff to Tim Hetherington is worth a read.


    Losing Hetherington and Hondros has been a terrible blow to the pj community. Such bravery, and such dedication being lost has diminished us all.

    I'd seen this thread and it vaguely rang a bell but the connection didn't resonate until I was listening to The Bob Edwards Show on NPR today and a clip was played from a past interview with Hetherington.
    Damn, what a shame.
    I'd never heard of "Restrepo" until the film makers appeared on NPR last year, then I saw the movie and was caught up in the reality of the footage.
    Now this.
    RIP, Tim Hetherington
