Colvin isn’t pitying herself, nor does she think she’s a hero for having  nearly died for her cause. “I feel that I am very lucky,” she says.  “These people you are leaving behind are much braver. If they want to  live, they have to be brave every single day of their lives.” One such  person was a Catholic priest she had met in Sri Lanka, who told her,  icily, “No journalists have come, no one cares about us, so why should I  talk to you?” After hearing of her injury, he had a letter smuggled out  of Tamil Sri Lanka, where there’s no postal system, and had it sent  from Colombo. The letter read, “I am very sorry to hear of your  injuries. You are remembered here as a brave and honest person.” “It was  just two lines,” Colvin says, “and it was so … it made me feel good.”
