“We have it within; but we get it all from without. There is a well-spring of strength, wisdom, courage and great imagination within each one of us; but once we draw on this truth, it gets watered from without, by a Higher Source – the Ultimate Source of Life and Love, which is God, the very Ground of our Being.”

Painting the Sand: British Army’s most highly decorated bomb disposal expert

http://www.radionz.co.nz/audio/player?audio_id=201853409

Staff Sergeant Kim Hughes is the British Army’s most highly decorated bomb disposal expert. During a gruelling six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2009, he defused a total of 119 IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and survived numerous ambushes by the Taliban. The following year he was awarded the George Cross Medal from the Queen for his heroic efforts after dismantling seven insurgent bombs by hand without any protective clothing so that four seriously injured soldiers, and the bodies of two dead comrades, could be recovered from the area. It has been described as the “single most outstanding act of explosive ordnance disposal ever recorded in Afghanistan”.

He has just written a tell-all memoir called Painting the Sand – a shocking and devastating story about his time on the frontline in the deadliest area of the country.
