Marquette University will hold a prayer service to remember the slain U.S. journalist James Foley, a 1996 graduate. U.S. government officials confirmed the authenticity of a graphic video showing Islamic State fighters beheading Foley.
The Marquette University press release describes Foley as someone with "a heart for social justice" who used his immense talents "to tell the difficult stories in the hopes that they might make a difference in the world."
You can... find a letter that James sent to the Marquette community and a speech he gave in 2011 at: http://go.mu.edu/1BCOGN5
Prayers for the Marquette community, the Foley family, for those James acted in solidarity with and for peace in our world.
