A touching column by Daniela Deane at the WashingtonPost about the killing of her husband, Mick Deane, last year in Cairo.

We have to remember, then, that behind every number, on the back of every death, is a devastating loss for those left behind. And a very personal experience of grief.

It would be easy to think of this as another widow lamenting the loss of her spouse in a Middle Eastern conflict of passion and conviction, but Mick Deane wasn’t a revolutionary or a protestor – he was a journalist, gunned down by a sniper from a distance while doing his job.
