The more I think about this story and the more developments I hear the more infuriating it gets. Especially as a mother, I can't even begin to imagine what Trayvon Martin's parents must be feeling, dreaming and living with right now. The story of the end of his life has become a symbol of silenced inequality and concealed injustice that plagues us. For the sake of not allowing this teen's violent death to be in vain, conversations and changes must take place on how guns, violence, racism, and prejudice thrive in this country and in the world.
I believe we are better than this.
