Trayvon Martin 2/5/1995-2/26/2012
A Boy with a Hoodie Walks Home
On February, 26, 2012, a young boy took a walk to the store to buy Skittles and Arizona ice tea for his little brother. On his way out of the store,he put on his hoodie and proceeded to walk home. Nevertheless, he was unaware of the danger that was about to unfold. He was being followed by a Neighborhood Watchman name George Zimmerman only because he had on a hoodie and looked suspicious. This little boy was only minding his own business and trying to get home.
But, he never made it. Instead, his body fell down in the alley, with a gunshot wound to the chest, blood spilling into the alley along with his Skittles that his brother never received.
This young boy was considered a threat because he was black, wore a hoodie and was labeled a thief, a thug, a gangster and perhaps other demeaning terms.
Let's remember the story of a boy who took his Last Walk! But also let's share the movement and recognize that Justice has Failed and continue to FAIL our people.
Although he is dead at 17, JUSTICE still has not been served. Many others are waiting for JUSTICE to be served for them as well.
Let us remember those who are still fighting for JUSTICE:
Do your part....Share the Skittles Movement and perform a Random Act of Kindness and give skittles and just tell people to help fight for justice for all Americans. Justice for All!
