Martha Gellhorn: Words worth pondering

Words worth pondering from Martha Gellhorn: “People often say, with pride, ‘I’m not interested in politics.’ They might say well say, ‘I’m not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedom, my future or any future . . . If we mean to keep any control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics.” Martha Gellhorn is one of the extraordinary war correspondents I wrote about in my book “Where the Action Was: Women War Correspondents in World War II.” There’s link to a brief documentary based on that book on my website.
