Amiga you are such a poet You have a way of putting your feeling into words that come thru for all of use to feel. This is such a sad reality for our kids i cant believe this is the world we are raising them in
Ruby, thank you for your encouragement earlier in the day. Such a sad story. These senseless killings and racial profiling need to stop.
This story breaks my heart and infuriates me at the same time! I think of my own son and can't imagine the pain that Trayvon's mom is going through.
I pray justice is served, Tara. IMHO, this is the worst in racial profiling. Yo tambien pienso en mijo, Amiga. The poor parents. : (
I agree with Ruby--you have such a way with words. Thank you for helping me work through my feelings of sadness and anger with your poetry. I can't imagine how his parents feel about the loss of their baby boy. So tragic.
Hello ladies, my heart aches every time I think of this story. Just recently a couple of men from the Dominican Republic where release (they killed a 9-year old boy about 15 years ago) the case was not about race, but still that left me so sad to think of the impunity. I honestly don't know how you can recover (if it is really possible) from something like this. Hopefully justice will be serve, however, those parents will never get their son back. Nice poem amiga, agree with the rest on how you can transmit the core feeling through words.
Thank you, Jen. I'm hurting for this poor family and for all the children of color who have to "amend" their behavior, activities, dress so that they don't become the unlikely targets of this kind of indiscriminate act. So, so sick of it.
Dania, it's senseless isn't it? As mothers, our minds automatically fly to our little ones. We are compelled to have to issue warnings to them -- how sad is that? For no other reason than the simple fact that they are not white. That's awful about the murder you share. Any tragedy having to do with our children cuts straight through. Thank you for your kinds words, Amiga.
Such a sad
I agree about the psycho part, but also believe that the victim's choice of clothing contributed to the shooter's speculation that he was suspicious. The whole thing is just devastating. I can't see a hoodie now without associating it with this shooting. : (
I'd love to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to comment. :-)
