Trayvon Martin’s Birthdate February 5

Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin

I write today with the knowledge that Trayvon Martin’s birthday is coming up on February 5. He would have  turned 18. He was killed on February 26, 2012 just shortly after turning 17. Sabrina Fulton said “He’s my son, but he’s your son too”. Her words echo in my head everyday. We have marched, petitioned, and blogged for Trayvon Martin. He undoubtedly became our son too. We, as the general public, have seen much violence being used against our children of any color. We want our children to LIVE longer than us and not be killed walking home with some snacks, or while  sitting in a classroom.
We can only imagine what pain and sorrow the family has to endure to not have their child for Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and now his Birthday; a date that to some is just a date.
We, as the extended family of Trayvon Martin, will not forget that date: February 5. We, as the extended family of Trayvon, will not let justice slip away either.
Trayvon Martin in his own way continues to live through us and with us. The idea of his name living on is not understandable to the defense lawyers, George Zimmerman supporters and the like. They will never understand that Trayvon represents a “Stop what the hell is going on in America moment in history”. It is so sad that in these United States we are going back in time, instead of going forward.

It is without a doubt that more and more  young black men are targeted by Police, Laws, Schools and people who think people of color have no rights whatsoever.


This is why we shall not forget Trayvon Martin’s birthday nor the date of his death.

  2. This is extremely hard to express, however it is true that Trayvon is a solid part of our lives now. Again my family expresses our sorrow for you loss and many of us would not be as strong. Black, White, Yellow, it matters not, but there are far more of us who stand beside you and your family and wish a “Happy Birthday” to “Our Son Trayvon” than any detractors. They are the insignificant part of our world.

    Keep your heads up and be proud that you raised him to be who he is. Take heart that one day there may be a “Trayvon Martin Day” an anniversary in which racism is outlawed as we know it. That is what I hope for in that all of us can overlook color which is how God originally planned our society.

    God Bless and keep you ! The Rodigs

  3. @Blushbrown, thank you for posting this, what a wonderful thing to do. Trayvon could have been my grandson and let me tell you, I would have been more than proud to have him. I agree with you about some in this country going back instead of forward. it seems this country is full of people who don’t like change and are content living in the past, while trying to force their ways and beliefs on others. what happened to Trayvon should have never happened and, for those who support Fogen, well their actions sums up who they are really well.

    As an African American woman as well as a mother, I really feel for Sybrina. I know this Feb. 5th is going to be very hard for her because, that was the date she first held this wonderful little bundle in her arms and now he’s gone. I can only hope and pray that she finds some manner of peace in order to get through the day of his birth.

    I almost lost my life and that of my son’s when he was born and, every Dec.12th, It is always on my mind. BTW, you guys here and at Professor Leatherman’s site are some real good and decent people and, I hope you don’t mind me being here because I want justice for Trayvon and his family to.

      @ladystclaire,

      Of course we don’t mind. We encourage people of all faiths, colors and background to share their love and thoughts for Trayvon and his family.

      Consider the 12th of Dec, a most blessed day, not a reminder of what could of happened but that you and your son lived on. Make every day count with him and your family.

      • Blushebrown. Welcome to Blackbutterfly7 as an author. Your post is such a great expression of what many of us believe and feel.

        I send forth spiritual hugs of love and comfort to Sybrina Fulton, and of strength and wisdom to Tracy Martin. May attorneys Crump and Jackson be blessed with wisdom beyond measure. May State Attorneys and Assistant State Attorneys in this case be given discernment, wisdom, and knowledge beyond measure.

          I am honored that you have invited me as an author of your blog. I feel so very welcomed by you and everyone who contributes to this Blog.

          I speak from the heart, which is very easy for me to do because it is the truth.

          I wish to extend another message to Sabrina and Tracey. Much love goes to you and your family as this day approaches. Keep holding strong.

  5. This is absolutely beautiful Blushedbrown.

    I think many of our lives changed when we learned about Trayvon. We hold our children a little tighter, say “I Love You” a little more, and feel the pain and sorrow for the innocent, and their family, in our hearts.

    I send my Love and Support to Trayvon’s family and friends. These friends include the many wonderful people that post here. If I had one wish, it would not be for wealth, nor fame, or even health. (As I am older, and have had my day in the sun)

    My wish is that Tracy and Sybrina feel the Love we send to them, and know our hearts hurt for their loss.

    I pray for Justice for Trayvon.

      I believe that by being the extended family of Trayvon Martin, helps them a little bit more to get through these tough times. They know that we are still fighting right along side with them for justice.

  6. No, we will not forget…we will never forget. Trayvon is in my heart. Very few make it there and when you do, you do forever. As long as someone remembers your name, you live on. We will make sure you are remembered on this side Trayvon. I’m still not over the senselessness of your death. I will never get over the senselessness…
