"War reporters say that you fall in love with your first war, and certainly that was true for me.

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the siege of Sarajevo, which began on April 5, 1992, when Serb snipers firing from the Holiday Inn killed two women participating in a peace march in front of the hotel."
