A Million Hoodies

22 Mar

By now, I am hopeful that everyone has heard the heart-breaking story of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old boy who was shot to death by a civilian man patrolling a Sanford, FL neighborhood where Martin lived. More importantly, I am hopeful that you have been to to sign the petition to have this man arrested.

On Wednesday, New York staged a rally of a million hoodies to push for justice in this case and to support the family of the victim.

I have cried twice while writing this post. And frankly “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired…”
