What those families did for me I can't even start to explain to people.
Two men - David Norris and Gary Dobson - are now serving life sentences for the death of Stephen Lawrence, who was 18 years old when he was attacked at a bus stop in Eltham.
"My family, especially me, I will never be the person I was before Stephen's death". Maybe sometimes people think you can just brush things aside.
'This is a life sentence that you can't finish. When you are going to go on a journey, if somebody else who has been through it comes and talks to you they can give you an idea what you're going to face down the road. 'I've been serving a life sentence and I will go on serving that until the day I die'. So in order to be a Christian, I decided I am going to forgive all those people who were involved in my son's murder.
Mr Lawrence said: 'I was so inspired by his persona and the way he talked to people.
The initial investigation into Stephen Lawrence's death was "marred by a combination of professional incompetence, institutional racism and a failure of leadership by senior officers", according to the judicial inquiry into the case by Sir William Macpherson.
Stephen Lawrence's father has said for the first time that he has forgiven his son's killers.
Mr Lawrence, a former plasterer, said the murder and subsequent public inquiry into racism in the police had made his son a significant figure in British history.
When these boys killed my son Stephen, they created a legend.
The 76-year-old has embraced Christianity and he plans to spend the 25th anniversary of his son's death in church. In his death, Stephen is a legend.
Parts of the United Kingdom, especially London, have seen a surge in violent crime this year - with almost 60 murders in the capital since the start of 2018.
Mr Lawrence said: 'Right now with the violence, and the knife crime violence, it is even more urgent now that I talk to these youngsters and explain to them the pain and the suffering they inflict on families.' Dobson, now 42, and Norris, 41, were convicted and jailed for life in 2012 when DNA and fibre evidence linked them to the murder. There is debate about racism, there are organisations set up to help to make people understand about racism, the police have been put under the spotlight because of Stephen's death'. The only gang member still on British streets is Knight, 41.
Mr Lawrence's solicitor Jocelyn Cockburn, from Hodge Jones and Allen, said: 'I am humbled by his message of forgiveness to mark the anniversary of his son's death.
Neville can feel proud of what he has achieved in the intervening years.
