It’s been over 3 months since the night that Trayvon Martin was killed. Zimmerman was finally arrested, given bail, and then bail was revoked. People have made as much political hay out of it, made money off of parties, started movements, boycotted Skittles and Arizona Tea, bought Skittles and Arizona tea, and still kids are dying. Every day…over the same stupid stuff that got Trayvon killed.
Can’t say that I didn’t know this would happen. Our society is too ADD and too unwilling to make permanent change. Kids are dying in Chicago, so much so that it seems common place. Almost as yearly as birds migrating.
How do we stop the violence? More gun laws? More community outreach? Answers aren’t easy to come by and they aren’t simple. It will take time, effort, and genuine caring and willingness to admit some things that we are not proud of.
