9780745955797: Jimmy: A Life Cut Short. Justin Butcher with Margaret and Barry Mizen

On the morning after his sixteenth birthday, Jimmy Mizen went out to buy his first lottery ticket. A few minutes later, he was dead: fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack in the local bakery, he bled to death in his brother's arms. A popular lad, a gentle giant at 6'4, Jimmy was the thirteenth teenager to die in a fatal assault that year in London, and as calls for retribution began, his parents appealed for calm. Barry and Margaret Mizen chose to respond to Jimmy's death by being positive. Interviewed by the media, they rejected violence and revenge. Instead, they have dedicated their lives to helping young people find a better way. This is their story - and Jimmy's story, the story of an ordinary lad, who was much loved.

About the Author:

Margaret and Barry Mizen are the parents of murdered teenager Jimmy Mizen. Since his death they have set up the Jimmy Mizen Foundation and travelled around the world promoting peace and reconciliation in 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.

Review:

Learning about Margaret and her family has solidified my view that the world is made up of far more good people than bad. Despite the devastating loss of their son and the resulting ever-present void, Margaret and Barry have shown remarkable tolerance and understanding, and a determination to spread and promote something which will benefit all our communities and each and every one of us-peace. -- Kate McCann
