Stopped on the way to attacking his high school, Tim Hutchinson spent years on the wrong side of the law, always one step from prison or the grave. But then a series of amazing events turned his life around. With the love he found through his wife, Jennifer, and the couple's children-and guidance from a mentor who had survived an extended encounter with Hitler-he resumed his own name, survived a life-threatening illness, learned to advocate within the system to get what he needed, and became an EMT who has saved lives. He even co-founded a successful nonprofit that teaches self-sufficiency and organizes donation of food, clothing, and medical supplies in Zambia. Now, he speaks to groups of teens and parents about stopping the cycle of violence. Hutchinson has also taught his own children the importance of loving others. His 5 yr-old daughter showed this lesson had taken root when she saved a friend from being hit by a school bus - and she did so knowing that her actions would cause her to be the one who was run over by the school bus, instead of her friend. Fortunately she survived, and became the youngest person ever to receive the 'Medal of Valor'. 'Battlescars' is credited with preventing two Columbine-style school shottings!
