Crocodile Tears

John Moody told me during the Tsunami that it was ok when I cried (with cameraman Mal James) on New Year's Eve in Thailand, but he added: "Don't let it happen again." I don't make a habit of crying on television but I must say the tears just started flowing when I heard Shep's voice. So familiar and yet it had been so long. It was such a heartfelt question from a guy who is all empathy: "how are you?" Should have been simple enough to answer: "Fine!" Instead I didn't know where to begin. The whole day had been so emotional from start to finish. Here's the clip in case you missed it. See John, I told you I couldn't make that promise!

But it's only natural, Shep and I bonded during the war with Lebanon. This was video of us on the air while our position was taking fire.
