LISTEN TO MCCONAUGHEY'S DIARY
MARCH 27, 2003 · Paul Moran was an Australian cameraman who was killed by a suicide car bomb at a Kurdish military checkpoint in northern Iraq last week. Moran, who was 39, had several years of experience covering the news in the Middle East, beginning with the 1991 Gulf War. Over the years he continued to document the lives of the Iraqi people. Here's a War Diary from his close friend, Lynn McConaughey of Washington, D.C. On Friday, she leaves for Adelaide, Australia, Moran's hometown, to attend his memorial service.
He was a vibrant, positive personality who captivated everyone he knew and I don't think there was anybody in the world that he didn't like. He was able to find something positive about everybody and let them know it. We always thought he would be OK and there have been a lot of people around the world who are broken-hearted right now. And I think I always expected to be hearing the news from him, not hearing news about him.
