Fearless: The Margaret Moth Story

CNN has produced a short (25-minute) documentary on Margaret Moth, a CNN camera operator with the talent, skills, and sensibilities needed to work in war zones. My brain and heart are still processing the information and perspective it contains, but, wow.

At the core, it's a story of a life fully lived, by a woman with a solid sense of balance: "When she was on an assignment, she gave it 100%, but at the same time, I have to say, she also knew how to unwind, how to relax, and how in a war zone you can go crazy if you don't actually know how to cool down a little bit and how to have fun." - Sausan Ghosheh, Former CNN Producer

Re: Margaret Moth
HI My partner and I would really like any help to know her whereabouts in order to at the very least send her a card, email or video. We think she is an awesome inspiration and a true role model.
She is now in our vocabulary all the time!

Re: MARGARET MOTH
The link in my original post is still working; you can view what I believe is the whole thing online.

I'm just another person who found the documentary compelling. I wouldn't expect CNN to cover health updates from the hospice, but would be surprised if they didn't report when the process reaches it's end.

My mother was in hospice in Michigan. It was so much better than her being in a regular hospital in terms of the quality of life during its final days (weeks...months....).

I wish Margaret comfort and continued peace. I agree; what an amazing woman!

Re: Margaret Moth
A few years ago a book was written and Margaret was mentioned in it and i think it was to do with someone who was working in the industry in war zones. It was after she was wounded in Sarvego, can anyone tell me the name of the book please.
