The Sunday Post – Gill Hicks

Gill Hicks was living in London in 2005. One morning she boarded a train on the Picadilly Line, and in the crowded carriage she was standing next to Jermaine Lindsay who was carrying a bomb.

When the bomb was detonated, she felt as though she was being enveloped in inky blackness. When the emergency lights came on she saw her legs and feet were shattered.

Today Gill has become close friends with the many police officers and medical staff who saved her life. She says the love she received from complete strangers is much more important to her than the hateful attack on herself and her fellow passengers.

Gill has founded a charity called MAD for Peace, which invites people all over the world to look for peace in their own lives.

Gill is the 2015 South Australia – Australian of the Year.
