Justice for Trayvon Martin

I HATE injustice like you wouldn't believe!

If you've not heard the story of Trayvon Martin, please check out this link.

On February 26 2012, 17 year old Trayvon Martin was walking back home from the shops and on his way back home was shot dead by a man named George Zimmerman - a neighbourhood watchman. The full details of the incident have not been released as yet, but what is known includes the fact that Zimmerman made the 911 call and was asked if he was following the youth. He answered yes. He was then told not to follow him. Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman shot him in the chest and Trayvon Martin died at the scene. Zimmerman claimed self-defense and he has NOT been arrested.

The outrage is so huge that it's even hit our news over here in the UK. And rightly so. When I heard this news I literally cried. I was so moved by it that I woke up the following morning thinking of how his family, his mother must feel. They even played the recording of the murderer's 911 call. You could hear Trayvon crying and screaming then a single shot. Then you couldn't hear him anymore. That's the point I wanted to throw up.

I really hope and pray that justice prevails in this case. It absolutely disgusts me that this man is still walking free. As if the boys life was worthless. I am so disgusted by this.

This injustice reminds me of that of the Stephen Lawrence story.

I said all that to say, please sign the petition.

My heart goes out to his family. My prayers and thoughts are with them.

God bless peeps!



  1. This is so so sad! So much injustice in the world gosh!

  2. I watched 'My Murder' on BBC3 last night, it was the story of a 15 year old boy who got trapped by his 'girlfriends' actual boyfriends gang. They beat him up and stabbed him...For no reason. Thankfully everyone involved is in prison. I just don't get how people can be so heartless. Life is precious :o(
