She Wanted To Report The Truth, And Ended Up A War Correspondent In Her Own Country

Meet four incredibly tough women journalists in a town once called the "murder capital" of the world. They describe their work, and also why they keep doing it. Fair warning: The video contains very graphic footage of the aftermath of violence.

The scene is set starting at 3:10, when one journalist describes what happened when the military arrived to "help." The journalists interview residents about whether they think politicians can help stop the violence (the one at 19:39 is great), and highlight a very cool campaign they created (at 20:45) to get the attention of people in power. At 27:30 you'll get big goose bumps as one journalist gives a very creepy tour of things she found left behind by police at crime scenes. Underneath all the chaos, there’s an astounding commitment to — and faith in — the city. This is nicely summed up at the end, and further justified by this recent New York Times article, documenting the return of life in the streets.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
