His smile and innocence captured my heart. The story will not fade from my mind. The young man who was killed in cold blood in Florida deserves justice.
Will President Obama’s comment – that Trayvon Martin looks like he could be a child of President Obama – be enough to stir empathy and justice?
It is easy to dismiss violence when one is distanced from it. But when the sweet face of a child, who could be your own child, stares at you from the news pages, one must seek answers and justice.
Trayvon may look like Obama, but a child walking freely and innocently down his hometown street is everyone’s child. And Trayvon deserves to have every parent in America stand up for him. Now.
