Barry and Margaret Mizen, the parents of murdered teenager Jimmy, will remember their son five years after his death at a commemorative service today.
Speaking to Daybreak, Jimmy's brother Tommy said: "[The anniversary] does come around unfortunately, and I don't think today is any harder than any other day if I'm honest, it's something we have to live with every day."
His mother Margaret said she has managed to cope with the pain through her faith, "it's common knowledge that I have a faith", she added, "I think [anger] destroys you".
Both Margaret and Barry, who give talks in schools, say they believe that it is through the love and care for a child that violence in youths will be overcome.
Mr Mizen said: "As we speak now there will be a child being born in this country that's not wanted, not going to be loved, subjected to violent and neglect, and that's what I think needs to change."
The mothers of two teenagers, who were stabbed to death in London, have been marking the final day of a special peace campaign centred on the London Olympics.
The 100 Days Of Peace initiative aimed to promote one hundred days of peace-making for fifty days on either side of the Games. It mirrored the ancient tradition of instigating a truce during the original Games in Greece more than 2,000 years ago.
Today, bereaved mothers Grace Idowu and Margaret Mizen visited a school in Wapping that had taken part in the campaign.
