"What would be more important to Jim is that his death would be worth something in terms of making a difference in the world," said Diane Foley, the mother of journalist James Foley.
In 2014, conflict journalist James Foley was the first American citizen to be killed by ISIS. A documentary about his life screened last week at Northwestern University, where Foley was once a student.
"Do we care about our freedoms? What is the value of an American citizen? What is so vital about journalism and free speech to our democracy?" Diane Foley asked.
