My prayers go out to the family of Trayvon Martin. The pain of their loss is only compounded by the verdict in the George Zimmerman case. The jury has found Zimmerman “Not Guilty.” Although this is the verdict we are forced to accept, I wonder if the prosecution did the best it could to try the case or did it fail to meet the burden of proof the jury required. But no matter what the outcome of the trial, the devastating and tragic loss of a young life remains a stark reality.
May Trayvon Martin’s memory be a blessing, may his family find some comfort in their sorrow, and may we act to prevent such senseless tragedies from occurring.
