Remembering Our Youth: Travyon Martin would have been 19 today
On this day in 1995, in Florida teen Trayvon Martin was born to parents
Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin would have been 19.
Martin, who had no criminal record when he was shot at 17 was a
baby faced teen who attended public schools in Florida,
including the Dr. Michael M. Krop High School in Miami Gardens.
Martin was killed by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman
on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman's arrest
sparked a national debate over racial profiling and the role of
armed neighborhood watch members in law enforcement.
On July 13, 2013, a jury acquitted Zimmerman of murder.
Justice needs to be served. We are praying for the parents who are still grieving.
