We Haven’t Forgotten You Trayvon!


Ladies, we must pay our respects to a fallen brother…

Although it has been almost a complete year since the tragic murder of seventeen year old Trayvon Martin, the wounds still hurt, the grief is still present, and the anger has yet to fully diminish. The worst part is that today, February 5, 2013, Trayvon would’ve been eighteen years old.

He would of been celebrating his liberation as young man, probably out eating dinner with his loving parents, hanging out with friends, or maybe even dancing with a pretty girl at his eighteenth birthday bash. But because of one accused individual, Trayvon will never have that experience.

On February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin tragically lost his life due to the suspicion of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, all because he was wearing a dark gray hoodie. According to cnn.com, Trayvon went to a local 7-Eleven in Sanford, Florida to purchase a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona iced tea. After he made his purchase, he made is way back to the home of his father’s fiance.

It was then that George Zimmerman noticed Trayvon walking through the neighborhood. He became suspicious and made a 911 call stating, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s just walking around.” Zimmerman began to follow Trayvon, even after he was demanded by the dispatcher not to do so. No one saw exactly what happened between Zimmerman and Trayvon, but neighbors did call 911 stating they heard “arguing,” “loud voices,” “yelling,” and finally a “gunshot.”

Zimmerman had shot Trayvon with a 9mm semiautomatic gun. The bullet entered the left side of his chest, and he was lying “face down in the grass.” Trayvon was pronounced dead at 7:30pm.

Millions across the nation still feel pain of your loss Trayvon. Although your body no longer lives, your spirit still dwells in our hearts. Rest peacefully with God our angel. You are missed. Happy Birthday!!
