Being careful today may mean being confined to a very small theater of operations — or avoiding the risk altogether. The cost of taking risks is real, as Jim’s death so painfully reminds us.

今天的小心翼翼可能意味着只在作战区的一个很小范围内活动,或者避免所有的危险。冒险的代价是血淋淋的,吉姆的死无时不刻痛苦地提醒着我们。

As a professor who also runs the Washington Program of the Medill School of Journalism, I taught Jim five days a week for three months when he was a graduate student reporting on national security issues in the fall of 2007. Teachers aren’t supposed to have favorites, but some students leave a lasting impression.

作为一个管理梅迪尔新闻学院华盛顿计划的教授,我曾教过吉姆三个月,每周五天课。2007年的秋天,他是一名报道国家安全问题的研究生。教师不应该对学生有偏爱,但是有一些学生确实让人印象深刻。

Jim, who was in his 30s and older than most of the others, with a teaching career behind him, was a serious student. He knew exactly what he wanted to do by the time he got to Washington: cover wars around the world, starting with Afghanistan and Iraq.

吉姆当时30多岁,比大部分学生都要年长,还教过学,他是个认真地学生。当他来到华盛顿时,吉姆非常清楚地知道自己想要干什么:从阿富汗和伊拉克开始,报道全世界的战争。

He was quiet, but his passion for foreign reporting was clear, and he worked hard at Medill to prepare himself. In Medill’s Chicago newsroom, he demonstrated an ability to get tough stories. One told of a playground being built next to a factory with a history of environmental violations.

吉姆很安静,但是他对报道国外事件的热情很明确,他在梅迪尔努力地工作为自己做好准备。在芝加哥的梅迪尔新闻编辑部,吉姆证明了自己获得棘手事件的能力。吉姆报道了一起在一个曾有过环境侵权行为工厂旁建设的运动场的事件。

In Washington he took on the national security beat, writing about military recruitment and retention problems, including a piece on the top recruiter for the Army National Guard, who happened to be in Fort Wayne, Ind. That contact helped him later embed with the Indiana National Guard in Iraq. He also enrolled in my class on conflicts, terrorism and national security.

在华盛顿吉姆开始报道国家安全问题,撰写关于征兵以及保留问题的报道,包括一篇关于美国陆军国民警卫队高级招聘人员的报道,当时该官员恰好在韦恩堡。那次报道助他日后深入在伊拉克的印第安纳州国民警卫队。他也选修了我教授的关于冲突,恐怖主义和国家安全的课程。
