I don’t know if you have been following this very controversial and very sad story out of Florida, about the unarmed young Black kid shot by the neighborhood watch captain. But it is one of the most troubling and saddest stories in a long time. And maybe that is more so for me as a father with a half-Black son. It is our worst nightmare.
This article from The New York Times sums up the story well. And if you can stand it, listen to the recently released 911 tapes here. But do Google Trayvon Martin and read more about what happened. A true tragedy.
