My amazing sister was in London the day after the sucsessful bid was announced, watching the announcement on 6th July was the last happy memory of her life before she found herself aboard the No.30 bus when it exploded at Tavistock Square. Lisa has been on an amazing personal journey since that time. To make sense of the suffering and pain she carries from that day Lisa has become and advocate for peace. She has also touched the lives of many with her positive thoughts and deeds. She took part in the Cambodia Challenge for Humanitarian Oragnisation MAG International, where she built a house and blew up a landmine! A bomb for a bomb! To raise funds and awareness for that charity we did a family skydive! This was on the day of the Beijing closing ceremony and she shed a happy tear watching Team GB's bus travel to M People's Proud. She continues to inspire and be inspired working with organisations such as The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace in Warrington. She is also pioneering a campaign called Peace of Cake which aims to encourage the world take time to enjoy cake and peaceful contemplation in the hope that peaceful thoughts turn into positive action. Carrying the Olympic torch would be an emotional and symbolic milestone to mark another step in her remarkable recovery. Also on a sporting and personal note, Lisa has inspired me to do the Great North Run for MAG International, after she completed the London Marthon by BUS! in under 3 hours!
