Fill-in-the-Blank Foreign Correspondent
Tom Grant has uncovered the secret form issued to American journalists for writing stories about civilians in war-torn lands:
___________ has lived in the village of ___________ for all [his/her] life. That was, until war came to the village. Today, ___________ lives in [a refugee camp/fear].
“I don’t know where I’ll go, or what I’ll do,” ______________ said, clutching his ___________, a treasured keepsake. “Nowhere is safe.”
___________ story is all too familiar, in this war that has claimed over ___________ lives. With the failure of negotiations between ___________ and ___________, there is no end to the violence in sight.
Still, ___________ clings to hope. “Every day I pray for peace,” [he/she] said. “It’s all I can do.”
It certainly gets a lot of use.
