Gill Hicks is someone who's presence makes an impact on this world. This I know from the brief conversations that I've had the pleasure to have with this incredible human. This is surely the reason she defied the odds that were cruelly stacked against her in 2005 in London, when a suicide bomber boarded the same train at the same time and stood one person away from Gill as he detonated a bomb throughout that carriage.The way that Gill articulated this event so vividly with a level of perspective, resilience and love left me hanging on every word, feeling almost like I was right there beside her looking on. She is someone who found the most powerful weapon of retaliation was not fighting back with hate, anger and regret, but with love, connection and understanding. I think we can all learn a little from that.This conversation will open your eyes to what you have to be grateful for, it will make you want to invest more in what really matters, it will make you tell those you love just that... and it will remind you to love what you may just be taking for granted right this very moment.I can't thank Gill enough for this conversation.Tiffanee Cook | www.rollwiththepunches.com.au | @tiffaneeandco | @rollwiththepunches_podcast--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/roll-withthepunches/message
Erin Cotter-Smith & Gill Hicks. Two epic women. One epic friendship. We heard from Erin and her personal experience with vicarious trauma from 15 years of researching 911 first responders. This layered upon a range of medical traumas she has endured, all whilst hurtling through life as a high achieving disaster medicine expert and academic who sits on the boards of many worthwhile foundations and organisations. We haven't heard from Gill YET, but among a host of ah-f*cking-mazing attributes, stories and accolades Gill, the author, the speaker and the superstar also happens to be the last person pulled from the rubble in the 2005 London bombings. Gill emerged a double amputee, losing both of her legs... But not her spirit. In this episode we talk about just that.. the spirit, the resilience, the what-is-it-that gets us through the shit. For these two warriors it was the very unique bond that was formed around a friendship between two people who through their own separate traumas and tough times, understood just how to support one another. There's a science to it that's for certain. Loneliness has been proven to increase mortality rates 26-32%... It kind of makes sense then to see friendship may just be our most powerful healing elixir.
