This Moment

It has been a few days now since the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case and it's still hard to wrap my head around the acquittal of George Zimmerman. I haven't known what to write here about it that hasn't already been said, but I just feel that I should etch this moment into the fabric of my space here on the internet. Like many, I was hoping and praying for the best, but when the verdict came I was not surprised because of the way that the trial seemed to be going. And I'm sad to say that I just wasn't surprised in general.

All that I can say is that I pray for Trayvon's parents and his family. The hurt that they felt when they lost him those many months ago must have surely been made worse when they heard this verdict. I can't even fathom what they must feel. My heart breaks for them and I send all my love...
