Following the murder of their son Jimmy Mizen in May 2008, his parents, Barry and Margaret Mizen, hit national headlines when immediately after the attack they spoke of compassion rather than revenge. Since that day the Mizen family has been determined of two outcomes; they will not be beaten by his death and that something good will come from it. For Jimmy works to make young people safer by building a legacy of peace in Jimmy’s memory.
