Terry Hicks – non-politician/non-sportsman Australian of the Year

On Australia day, one of the points worth reflecting on, is who would you like to point at and say, “This person is represents some of the best qualities of the people of our country.” For me, I would point to Terry Hicks.

It looks like David Hicks, his son, made some poor life choices. In spite of all of this, Terry Hicks went out to bat for his son and did so with considerable opposition from the Australian government. (The ALP wasn’t much better.) Eventually the Australian government was shamed into taking action.

One person can make a difference. Thank you Terry Hicks.

I should point out that Terry Hicks is more than a Dad who never gave up.
