Remembering Trayvon Martin
On February 26, 2014, it will be two years since Trayvon Martin was killed. At times, it seems like it was yesterday. Blackbutterfly7 pays honor to Trayvon Martin and his parents. We shall not forget. People across America came together and protested because the killer was known and not arrest. America became aware of stand your ground law. Kevin Cunningham started a petition for an investigation and arrest of the man who killed Trayvon Martin. It was signed by over 2 million people.
After the verdict, people gathered and expressed their feelings and opinions. Some entertainers announced they are boycotting Florida and others paid honor to Trayvon.
If we forget Trayvon Martin, we forget why he was targeted, and we forget that the law did not protect him.
