Speak up. Speak loud. SPEAK. #TrayvonMartin

by Migdalia Rivera

 

This makes me sadder than words can ever describe. As the Mother of two Latino sons of color, I fear for them. I worry whenever they go out, when they have to ride the train/bus, or travel alone. My heart goes out to Trayvon’s mother, his family and OURS …  all of ours. May we never, ever, forget what occurred to this child and move to make sure it does NOT happen again.

Speak up.

Speak loud.

Speak.

Sign the petition NOW to prosecute the killer.

Don’t let another one of our sons die needlessly.

It is very sad. I think about the young men I know (my friends’ sons) who could be in that situation, and hope it never happens to them.

Oh this saddens me so. Something so obvious in knowing this child was murdered and the whole world agrees, yet his killer goes free. Another case just like Cassie Anthony, where no justice will be served and they get to set a bad example for others to come
