WJI Buzz - Miniter, Goldberg, Gourevitch, Olasky, Rosenberg, Vincent, Williams

May 4, 2011

New York, N.Y.--World Journalism Institute recognizes the bravery and honor of our Navy SEALs shown in the death and burial of Osama bin Laden.

Having worked in New York City with The King's College since 2001 to train young journalists from around the country, we have seen the tenacity and nobility of New York citizens since the attacks on 9/11.

WJI Deputy Director Kim Collins went to Ground Zero on Monday, May 2, to honor those who died and show our gratitude for a job well done by our military. The photo shows a pickup truck emblazoned with the names of the heroic firefighters and police officers who died.
