I have not expressed ANY feelings on my FB account about this case( GOD knows there is enough on FB about this), but I would like to post something I read today from MSN.....

Four of the jurors released a statement Tuesday appealing for privacy.

“We ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives,” the four women, identified only by their juror number, said in the statement.

“Serving on this jury has been a highly emotional and physically draining experience for each of us. The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do.”

So...with that said I would like to go on record as saying that I think that it is tragic that a young man died,it doesn't matter if he acted like a saint or a thug,because given the chance ANYONE can grow up to be a model citizen(whatever that may be).
I would also like to say that it does not matter what my opinion on the case is because I cannot change the verdict nor can I bend the law to say what I think it should say.SO i accept this verdict as the jurors saw fit,and I express condolences for those affected in a negative way by this.
This is not a precedent to a race war,nor should it be.We live on this earth together and have to learn to live like it.
I know we have our own opinions about the matter,but opinions don't really matter to the law.
WE must accept this verdict and move on,NOT ignoring this case but remembering it. In order for things to be right,some things have to change,this is why we vote,and although we can't change anything about what happened in the Treyvon Martin vs George Zimmerman case,we have to be aware of how we can change things to come.
I read a lot of post about people (especially African -Americans) asking "What do I tell my Children?"
well tell them this....
Trust in GOD,Pray for change,and be active in your community in a positive way.
I understand that none of what i said "fixes" anything that has already happened ,but I hope it gives hope to a hopeless situation,and brings a peace to a broken nation
