Do not feel stupid for not knowing about current affairs like your friends. The things they see on the tv are not real life but a depiction of what the media would like us to think and see. Its wonderful that they take an interest in it but you have the advantage of having real life experience and being a survivor, unlike those people whose lives and thoughts are governed by the tv, you have lived and learned and had the strength to survive everything life has thrown at you.

Do not beat yourself up about not saving whilst with him, as you have said it was impossible for you to do so. It is not worth worrying about things that you cannot change – although we all fall foul of this sometimes.

I wish you the best of luck in your interview. xx
