The morning after his 16th birthday Jimmy Mizen, a popular lad, a gentle giant at 6'4, went out to buy his first lottery ticket. A few minutes later, he was dead. Fatally wounded in an unprovoked assault in the local bakery, Jimmy bled to death in his brother's arms as horrified friends and family gathered. This book, written by his parents, Maragret and Barry Mizen, tells the story of Jimmy's death and the devastating effect on their large family. It also describes how this ordinary couple from an ordinary family embarked a very extraordinary journey. Over three short years, the Mizens have made astonishing achievements in their son's memory: through the Jimmy Mizen Foundation, the City Safe Havens scheme and Families United, they have embraced a powerful vocation, as peace ambassadors to broken communities.
Justin Butcher is an internationally renowned playwright and theatre director. His many plays include the multi-award winning Scaramouch Jones starring the late Pete Postlethwaite, the hit West End anti-war satire The Madness Of George Dubya, the controversial Go To Gaza, Drink the Sea, and five plays for Radio 4.
