“My heart is heavy for that community right now, the Martin family for their tragic loss & the Zimmerman family who will live in fear & the nation, because this case brought out the ugliest of ugliness on both sides.
For those who think Zimmerman was really guilty, trust me, let it go. If he was lying & they got it wrong he WILL answer to a higher authority – there’s no escaping that.
For those who are celebrating & support him, humble yourselves & do not give in to insensitive celebrating of a dead 17 year old nor should you throw this in anyone’s face.
It’s a tragedy all around.
The race-baiting, insensitivity & relentless vitriol from both sides means we have a LONG way to go as a nation.
This case didn’t create any wounds or hatred, it revealed them. It brought them to the surface.
THAT is the real tragedy – that we have a ton of healing to do in terms of race relations in America.
It has only begun…”-Talitha McEachin
