What causes a man to go wild and attack total innnocents and strangers in a school? How do the victims, children, teachers, and those around them, come to terms with the trauma and aftermath? When a man entered the children's junior school in Wolverhampton, UK and set about them with a machete, Lisa Potts had only her bravery and reactions to defend her much loved little children. She was awarded Britain's second highest civilian award, the George Medal, for the life-saving actions. She herself took horrifying injuries, but her story is one of coming to terms with the attack itself, and the stress of unlooked for fame.
