Anniversary of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Tragedy: Reflections on 2012 in 2013

Anniversary of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman Tragedy: Reflections on 2012 in 2013.

February 26, 2012 marks the tragic end of the life of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin at the hands of a neighborhood watch member, George Zimmerman. What a travesty of a great program to protect our neighborhoods–marred by such a situation, reminding us that no system of protection exists without the flaws of humanity twisting their ways into the works.

It is the privilege of every person to remember the things that brings the nation together, no matter how controversial the thing that does it may seem. Does the tragedy seem so harsh now that some time has passed and more evidence is available? Can we sit and have academic conversation about the incident without passions making us into enemies?
