As an African American woman who has raised four all-black men, my heart and mind can’t get off the Trayvon Martin tragedy. With all the news media and people protesting across the country, I felt that it was my duty to get involved. I know and realize that kids are dying and being killed every day, especially where I came from, Chicago. I wrote a poem feeling and thinking only as a parent’s point of view, I kept watching and thinking: What if that was one of my sons?
I feel that if you haven’t lost a loved one, then you can’t imagine haw horrible it would be to hear your child was murdered for nothing.
