Find some consolation.
I lived through the death
of Emmitt Till.
It was a time I had
to learn to beware.

Even of my white cousins.
Today we live through
the death another of
our innocent babies.
Trayvon Martin.
 
Another Emmitt Till.
Innocent and dead!

YOU ARE SO RIGHT, LOUISA. I DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THIS INCIDENT IN fLORIDA, BUT THIS I DO KNOW - WHATEVER HAPPENED, TRAYVON, WHO HAPPEN TO BE WEARING A HOODIE AND ONLY HAD A BAG OF SKITTLES ON HIM AND WHO WAS FRIGHTENED BECAUSE HE WAS BEING FOLLOWED BY A WHITE MAN AT NIGHT THAT DIDN'T IDENTIFY HIMSELF, DID NOT 'DESERVE' TO DIE! IF ONLY THE OVER ZEALOUS WATCHMEN WITH A GUN HAD 'LISTENED' TO THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE 911 OPERATOR AND 'NOT' FOLLOWED THE BOY. MY HEART ACHES EVERY TIME I THINK ABOUT IT AND I AM JUST WAITING TO SEE WHAT WILL BE THE FINAL ANALYSIS OF THIS TRAVESTY. I SYMPATHIZE WITH TRAYVON'S MOTHER. THIS IS SO HEARTWRENCHING AND SO VERY SAD! THANKS FOR SHARING, LOUISA. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

I never had a child but my heart is heavy. I've been shot at as a child in 1954. I can imagine the pain of the parents in 2012.
