Today is the third anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman.
February 5 would have been his 20th birthday, and I would hazard a guess that today is just as hard on his parents as his birth date is. It’s even harder when less than a day ago the Department of Justice announced that they wouldn’t be pressing charges against Zimmerman for Trayvon’s murder.
Zimmerman may have gotten away with murder, but for all intents and purposes he’s earned a life sentence in which he’ll have to constantly look over his shoulder to see if someone’s going to do unto him what he did to Trayvon.
Rest in power Trayvon.
