My heart is heavy; reading about the tragic death of young teen, Trayvon Martin has this ‘brand’ new mommy feeling blue. Take a silent moment and pray for the family and cherish your babies, they are a gift.
As a mother of two, I worry constantly about my kids when they are not with me, and, drill to my 12 year old son that he can’t wear the young Black guy dress code without consequences– you know, hoodie, jeans, snapback cap and so forth. BNM, there are many folk like George Zimmerman, waiting to pull the trigger and take out another young brother because they look ‘suspicious.’ It’s time to get involved!
Let’s make our voices be heard and fight for all the Trayvon Martins; please sign the petition, attend the meeting organized by Sharpton’s National Action Network on Thursday, March 22, at 7pm in Cranford, Florida and keep all families in prayer.
Each day take a minute to hug and tell you child how much they are loved no matter what.
Let me know your thoughts on the death of Trayvon Martin and post a comment for his parents.
