17-year-old Trayvon Martin was killed unmercifully as he was returning home with Skittles and an Arizona Tea, in Sanford Florida. The unacceptable reality is the person who shot him is still walking the streets of Sanford freely as if the Police are rewarding him for killing a fugitive. The community of Sanford has rallied against this injustice. I say it's about time.
My heart grieves for this family, yet I'm thankful that my young adult children no longer live there. The horrid reality is that this isn't the only case of injustice in Sanford. I have experienced it firsthand before and have been a witness to friends who have suffered the injustice there, It is a crying shame a another child had to die before the light was brought to injustice in Sanford.
