James Foley was remembered on Wednesday as a journalist who was passionate, persistent, big-hearted, always pushing closer to the story. The 40-year-old went missing in northern Syria in November 2012, and his death was shown in a video that militants with the Islamic State group released Tuesday to international outrage. The news brought an outpouring of respect and sorrow from friends, colleagues and others who were struck by Foley's pursuit of humanity in what he once called "these barren places."
