  1.  Poor Mika. She died, like all journalists killed covering foreign wars, a hero. It breaks my heart. She was a very sweet intelligent and
    selfless person. Her main goal in going into these areas was to show the
    plight of war’s most innocent victims; women and children caught in the
    middle. RIP Mika Yamamoto, -Oh that you could have lived in peace
    instead.
