I'm so glad to finally see this! Besides the obvious justice for Trayvon and his parents, I think it's monumental for the young people who ignited this fire in the beginning. It so important for our young people to see that their efforts actually made a difference. Remember, that young people are the ones who used social media to make everyone pay attention. And it worked! I talk about how important it is for young people to believe they can change the world here: http://www.themommypsychologist.com/2012/03/22/zimmermann-2012/

I feel bad for his parents.only God knows what really happened.prosecutors shouldn't be so easily swayed by Lynch mobs though...that charge wont stick due to the laws of that state..unfortunately Zimmerman wont get a fair trial...this is .why people dont get involved......and why wont they release any recent photos of trayvon....are they afraid he might appear threatening in them?instead they release photos of a 12 year old boy...I guess anyone questioning it would be branded a racist so the silence continues....
