My name is among several hundred friends and colleagues who are calling for the immediate release of Alan Johnston in an advert in the Guardian.

Download the advert here.

It's a poignant day for the ad to be published.

It's four years to the day since I lost my leg to an Iraqi landmine and Kaveh Golestan lost his life.

I make a point of treating the anniversary as a cause of celebration. Despite the tragedy, I'm still here.

This year I've got more reason than ever to celebrate. Not only am I here but little William Robert is too.

I used to raise a glass at times like these to "absent friends". until I realised and felt in my being, they had not gone away, they were still with us.
Long I hope to remain so.

Hope you don't mind us raising a glass over here either. Not a time I find easy to celebrate, until I realise I still have my little brother AND now a sister-in-law AND a nephew. Sorry, got to go, Heather Mills is about to dance!!!

Love Steve

I'm glad this is a day of celebration for you. Your story continues to be one of inspiration for me - not the event itself, but the choices you have made since it happened.

My heart is with the family of Alan Johnston. I know intimately what they are going through.
