Here are some of my thoughts shared on Twitter this morning. I thought it would be easier to post them together and I’ve expanded on some of the ideas.
I too mourn for the Martin family and desire justice. Having lost a daughter of my own, I understand that the pain of losing a child is like no other pain in this world. Immediately after singing a painful chorus of “WHYYYYY”, the next question is often “WHOSE FAULT is it and WHY are THEY still BREATHING”? “Justice” is the cry…a deep painfully numbing cry.
I pray that the truth is fully revealed about the Trayvon Martin case and that “justice” is served, but the outcry is about far more than a mother losing her son. Whether someone is charged or not, gapings holes of unforgiveness, bitterness, mistrust, and anger have been exposed for all to see.
