ABSTRACT
This section presents an article about the views of the author regarding the bravery of war correspondents. The author experiences attacks where she still manage to escape. She got marched in the woods by Serb paramilitaries with a gun pointed at her back. She also slept on a door frame in East Timor while waiting for an assault from rebels. However, after several months she has escaped. Hence, what makes her guilty is that the people who usually helped her do not survive the attacks and threats.
