Conflict & Tragedy

Photo gallery of memories:Trayvon's last days with friends and family

I am not going to get into a lengthy, heavy dialogue on what happened to 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26 in Sanford, Florida. You already know. If you're one of my loyal readers, you know I have already ranted endlessly. Couldn't help it, this tragedy and ensuing travesty hit home hard for me.

This is simply to show some photos of Trayvon's last days with his family, courtesy GlobalGrind.com. I know others have tried to vilify and victimize the victim a second time--with hacked Facebook conversations, pics and user named plastered all over the Internet.

Tried to depict him as a thug. Tried to turn young swagger and teenaged bluster into something more sinister. The above pictures shows the Trayvon his family and friends knew and loved. The boy his mom Sybrina and dad Tracey are nursing a grief-stricken heart over losing. The young love his girlfriend DeeDee is missing. The Trayvon his best friend DJ wishes he could hang with again.
