Vandalism is never the answer
As I said here yesterday, I don't know what the answer is, but the status quo has got to go. There must be changes in laws and changes in how we think. Many people actually applauded the Zimmerman verdict, although for me it was complete disgust. I really wish I had some answers. As I said, "I wish I had some great wisdom that could change all of this injustice and let us move onward." I don't though. I only know that we need to be committed to change or it won't happen. Together we can work toward good. We have to want to end racism though. We have to want to end injustice.
It is frustrating when you see the victim of a murder put on trial. Trayvon Martin does not deserve that. Remember he is the VICTIM. May he rest in peace. May this tragedy finally wake us up that we are one people and that we should be united in love, not devided by hate. Honor Trayvon by peacefully working to change so that this will never happen again.
