The world of journalism is mourning the loss of New York Times war correspondent Anthony Shadid.

The Pulitzer Prize winning journalist died in eastern Syria from an apparent asthma attack.

Anthony Shadid never lost contact with his high school freshman English teacher, Lynne Roller, who now works for the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

I got a chance to talk with Lynne about the young man she’s known for nearly 30 years.

Shadid was 43-years-old.
