Este Hyman is speaking about her sister, Miriam, who was killed f on July, 7th 2005. Miriam was travelling by bus to a meeting when a bomb at the top deck exploded.
"I feel that Miriam finds ways of letting me know she’s still with me, - sometimes through music or otherwise, but whether this is true or not - it doesn’t matter. It gives me comfort”.
Miriam was one of the 52 people killed 7 years ago when four suicide bombers struck the bus and tube network in Central London. More than 770 people were injured. The coordinated attacks took place during the morning rush hour. Three bombs went off on underground trains near Liverpool Street at road between King’s Cross and Russell Square. The final explosion was in a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square not far from King’s Cross. The four suicide bombers were all British citizens.
