James says: the main factor that really struck me was the way in which Laurie told his story. His tone of voice has a sincerity to it, which I felt deepened the impact of his words. Here we have a man who fought bravely for his country, and who looks back at a very dangerous situation that played a big part in his life. He is just one man of the three-to-four hundred who were on-board that day, all of whom could have all perished but didn't. For me, I think this story has a nice message to it that will resonate with a lot of people; the message is to never take life for granted.
