“It Took a Nation”: Ode to Trayvon Martin (continued)

The Trayvon Martin case has touched the very heart of the nation,  the Black community, again, just like in the days of old.  30 days have passed, 35, 40:  44 days later, the killer has been arrested.  An ironic twist, the killer says he now fears for his life: didn’t give a damn about mine/Trayvon’s.  The killer’s attorney is now asking the people to forgive and not be angry…did my killer offer that to me?

Trayvon has now joined the ranks of MLK, Malcolm, murdered because of the color of his skin.  Doesn’t Trayvon have rights too?  The right to be protected, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 

Zimmerman made bail…unbelievable.  A man who hunted down a young, unarmed, teen who was walking down the street on his way home is free.   They say he is entitled to a fair trial, something Trayvon never got.
