President Obama expressed outrage over the decapitation of journalist James Foley.
The video of the decapitation is chilling and brutal. Foley, 40, was working freelance for a French news agency when he was kidnapped in Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012.
His parents said they want the memories of their son to be about the caring human being he was.
"He was just a hero," said his mother Diane Foley. "You know from the videos, his last words were I wish I had more time to see my family," said his father John Foley while his mother added, “Jim had a big heart."
The man who killed Foley had a British accent and is heard blaming the United States for aggression against the Islamic state, or ISIS.
President Obama praised Foley and said, "Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocks the conscience of the entire world."
"I was taken hostage a couple of times, shot at more than I care to think of," said Dan Mogulof, who now works in the Communications Department at UC Berkeley. The former journalist worked in Tel Aviv as bureau chief for CBS News.
He says he's now thinking about all the journalists in danger zones around the world.
"It reminds me how fortunate I am that I survived similar situations by virtue of luck," said Mogulof.
"These are some very, very plucky and courageous journalists," said Ed Wasserman, the dean of UC Berkeley's School of Journalism.
He says freelance journalists such as Foley go into hostile zones where major media organizations have pulled out their reporters.
"They are performing without a net and when things go bad, they go real bad," said Wasserman.
Here's what motivated James Foley to keep telling stories from war zones, in his own words: "I believe that frontline journalism is important. Without these photos and videos and first hand experiences, we can't tell the world how bad it might be."
Foley's parents are urging the militants to spare the lives of other hostages.
They said, "Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria or anywhere in the world."

Businesses in what's considered one of the safest parts of San Jose are on alert after vandals hit three different stores in a matter of days.
Surveillance video inside the Baskin Robbins on Willow Street in Willow Glen captured what the owner believes to be shots fired into his store. The video shows glass breaking at 2 a.m. Wednesday.
The 13-year owner said he's angry and believes the vandal used a high powered paint gun or BB gun after finding steel balls.
Two days prior, employees at a Starbucks on Lincoln Avenue say someone threw one of its outdoor tables through that store's now boarded up window. The manager at BevMo on the same street says its store windows were smashed early last week.
At this point, it's unclear if the acts of vandalism are connected.
"I'm pretty surprised because I thought this area was pretty calm and pretty safe," said Radah Lorca who lives in San Jose.
In all three cases, nothing was taken. Questions swirl if there's a serial vandal or if the businesses were targeted.
"It's really starting to become a concern at night," said Jennifer Beckus who has lived in Willow Glen for 43 years. "I really feel these business owners are working really hard up keep our community going and they don't deserve this."
"We don't have any security on a regular basis so everybody's got to look out for themselves," said Tim Mulcahy of the Willow Glen Business Association.
As for the Baskin Robbins owner, he said it's going to take a lot of ice cream cones to pay for the mess.Wed, 20 Aug 2014 22:18:49 -0700
