Happy Mother’s Day, from Trayvon’s mom


If you want to see strength and dignity in the face of devastating loss, check out the new ad from Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton:

This will be my first Mother’s Day without my son Trayvon. I know it will be hard, but my faith, family and friends will pull me through. On Sunday, I’m going to say a prayer for other mothers across America who share this unbearable pain. Just like me, 30,000 mothers lost their children this year to senseless gun violence.

Nobody can bring our children back, but it would bring us comfort if we can help spare other mothers the pain that we will feel on Mother’s Day and every day, for the rest of our lives. I’m asking you to join Florida by calling up the governor of your state to re-examine similar Stand Your Ground laws throughout the nation to keep our families safe. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Happy Mother’s Day.

And if you want to see why our country has such a hard time changing gun policy, brace yourself for the Youtube comments. It’s a mess in there.
