Bismillah. The following were also at the summit: ex-President Uribe of Colombia. Mark who was kidnapped there by FARC rebels (as was Tom Hart-Dyke, not at the summit).
Camilla Carr, who went to Chechnya from the UK to help children but was kidnapped and held by fighters for 14 months & treated brutally. She has written a book about her ordeal, “The Sky Is Always There.”
Dari (?), one of the teachers held hostage during the Beslan massacre, was also there but I didn’t have the honour of meeting her.
Sue Hanisch, whose leg was blown off by an IRA bomb in a litter-bin at London’s Victoria Station in 1991. Bins were removed from the London Underground after that.
I was touched by the patience, dignity, courage, forgiveness and smiles of all the heroic “Survivors” at the Summit. The Formers are all inspirational people: the Survivors even more so. All Praise be to Allah.
