  1. I saw this a few weeks ago and am still awed by this. no matter what, unless we walk in their footsteps, we cannot grasp the full extent of what they have endured. When we look at the past year, Trayvon’s cause is so overwhelming in emotion, and momentum that there is no doubt Justice will be served. There is no doubt that he will not have died and be forgotten.There is no doubt, his parents have survived an enormous tragedy, overcome enormous adversity and will have the memory of a son who was that normal kid, who’s name will be used with the stature of Dr. Martin Luther King. A Cause !

    I am glad that Xena posted this video because it shows the love and affection from Tracey and Sabrina for their son Trayvon. I know that today will be hard on the family, and us. I want to think of Trayvon on the horse. I want to think of him helping his Uncle. I want to think about him hugging DeeDee. I want to think about him as much as possible of living moments then the other. It will be extremely hard, but it will keep me from falling apart. I feel the tears coming once again, so I will repost what Racer said.

    It’s raining today, and chilly. Am thinking of the Fulton and Martin families, and their son and brother lost so senselessly to gun violence aided and abetted by wrongful laws, through a person wrongly empowered by those wrongful laws, supported by a police department wrongfully promoting those wrongful laws. It is a terrible anniversary, but may the perpetrator be brought to justice correctly.

  4. To Sabrina and Tracy and all of Trayvon’s loved ones:
    .
    I embrace you with my love and support.
    May God’s love and comfort enfold your hearts.
    May memories and reflections bring glowing warmth within you.
    May your prayers be lifted up and heard.
    And,
    May you always be aware of those who strongly support you.

      • Yes, I am thinking of her a lot today. Do you know a good gospel group that sings “You life me up”?

        When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
        When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
        Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
        Until you come and sit awhile with me.

        You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
        You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
        I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
        You raise me up… To more than I can be.

  11. A year it’s said, I have been gone,
    but may I say, you are ALL wrong?
    I walk amongst you, and I see,
    the hurt and anguish, felt for me.

    Please let me set, your minds to rest,
    I hear you……..and I send MY BEST!
    So Mom and Dad, please let me say,
    I feel about time, in this way:

    What is an hour, what is a day…
    what is a year, may I please say?
    I live in Peace, I’m still with you,
    and watch everything , that you do!

    I am surrounded, by pure light,
    there is no daylight, or a night.
    I live in Peace, I know no hours,
    my life now, only smells the flowers!

    My life was taken, on the night,
    a year ago, I was in flight,
    But with you, I will always stay,
    I’m with you each and every day!!!!!!!!!!

    HOODIES UP! As requested by Trayvons Parents! And my candle is burning in his honor, and will be until midnight!

    RIP sweet child…………Justice will be yours!

  15. Please forgive me for not being active here today. Thanks to all for their participation, sharing of thoughts and love for Trayvon and his parents. That positive energy sends forth righteousness like a waterfall. Love is the greatest power of all.

    Watching Sybrina and Tracy in New York, I was captivated by their courage, dignity, and strength. Jamie Fox, Dr. Tyson and other speakers were right-on.
