Weep for Their Loss
We are all Trayvon Martin.
We are all Trayvon’s mother. We are all Trayvon’s father. What is done to one of us is done to all.
Until the killing of a child of color is equal in its horror to the killing of a white child, we will have no justice. We will have no peace. We will remain a country that has lost its soul.
Remember: Martin, Emmett Till, Medgar,
Oscar Grant, Amadou Diallo and so many more. Weep for their loss.
On the door of Susan Gardner’s
Mosaic House on Wyckoff Street.
