I know I haven’t blogged in ages, but I wanted to take a second here to point to a story I wrote in today’s Globe.

The story of Dieuphete Celime, as heartbreaking as it is, is one of ultimate hope. As much as I love covering breaking news/spot news, and as good as I’ve become at running out and getting the quick story, I would write Dieuphete Celime stories every day. This story is not tragic but beautiful, and photographer Eric Jacobs did a fantastic job capturing the scene.

As I turn 28 today, it’s a great gift to be able to put a story like that in the newspaper.
