First, I have to say that I love Ann Curry. I am an Iraq Veteran and Aspiring writer with PTSD and a 60% service connected disability. Life is not always so easy for me. I tend to struggle.
It's Ann Curry's love for American Veterans that inspires me the most!
One of the things that really gives me a sense of calm and certainty in life is Ann Curry's compassionate style of journalism. I was in Iraq for ten months in 2005. That experience changed me forever. I am now very sensitive to the hurt, pain and troubles on this planet, even though I feel that I only received a very small portion of that experience.
Ann Curry's sensitivity to the human experience telegraphs through her journalism, to me and many other fans and viewers. Her compassion and dedication to her audience radiates every time she stands in front of a camera. She connects with people. She has definitely connected with me.
So please, NBC Universal. Do not take this from me. Do not take this from us.
Respect Ann Curry, cherish her. She is one of the best things you have going and to throw her away would be nothing short of a crime.
