Jimmy Mizen- tragedy and hope in three and a half minutes

This week we have seen the trial of Jake Fahri, accused of the murder of Jimmy Mizen a 16 year old schoolboy- who died on his way to buy his first lottery ticket. The Old Bailey court heard the prosecution case of how Jimmy and his brother were harassed by Fahri and that in the ensuing assault Jimmy lost his life when glass from a bowl Fahir threw cut into Jimmy’s  neck and he bled to death. Some months ago I had the privilege of being part of a team that developed a short film in which Jimmy’s parents and older brother share their love for Jimmy and how their faith has helped them begin to cope with this dreadful tragedy. They share their story in three and a half minutes- the same time the incident took which ended Jimmy’s life a day after his sixteenth birthday.
