…as our own son, nothing will change.
My son Shem almost always wears a hoodie…and he prefers to have candy in that hoodie. He does not face the same racism that Trayvon did. Luckily, we also have not had a neighbor like George Zimmerman.
While we lament our gun-crazed violent and hateful culture, may our hearts and thoughts be with Trayvon’s parents. Trayvon is their son. They can no longer hug him. They can no longer enjoy his smile. They can no longer listen to his laugh.
We have failed them.
We have failed Trayvon.
