We are Trayvon Martin

Today I had the opportunity to participate in a march to raise awareness and rally support for Trayvon Martin. It was amazing to see so many people out in support of this young man that was tragically gunned down a few weeks ago. People from all over the Bloomington community came out to stand in solidarity with Trayvon’s family and to stand against hate crimes in America. Sadly this case reminds me of the case of  Emmett Till. It’s a shame to think that 60 years later a black man can be murdered in cold blood on the streets at the hands of a white man with little reprocussions. We must do better. It is time for us to stand in solidarity against these injustices. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reminds us that the perpetuation of injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We must stop the violence. Check out the stirring video below.
