A Word for Trayvon

My heart aches for Trayvon’s family. A guilty verdict would not have summoned him back.

That is what a parent wants when their child dies.

They don’t care where the jewelry came from, they go over and over and over everything that happened… they wish they could have a do-over.

A do-over: keep Zimmerman’s ass in the car…convince the boy to stay home and play a video game…something…something that would have kept him alive.

No jury can do that. No judge can raise the dead.

Which is one more reason for all of us to mourn.
