The morning after his 16th birthday Jimmy Mizen, a popular lad, a gentle giant at 6'4"e;, 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 "e;ordinary"e; couple from an "e;ordinary"e; 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 "e;peace ambassadors"e; to broken communities.
