Ebony_cover_Trayvon_tributeAs one of the most controversial trials of this year, everyone can remember where they were and how they felt with the non guilty verdict of George Zimmerman came in against the killing of Trayvon Martin. Since this verdict there have been several marches and even a boycott against Florida in an effort to change gun laws to prevent this from happening again. For September’s issue of Ebony Magazine, the magazine decided to honor Trayvon and his family by having four separate issues.Ebony_cover_Trayvon_tributeEbony_cover_Trayvon_tribute Ebony_Cover_Trayvon_tributeGracing the first cover is the Martin family.

About Author

I am new to blogging...but let me tell you I have been writing since I was 5 years old. My mom still has the mini books that I made in Kindergarten. As a single mother of two boys and a full blown Gemini, my outlook on life has many ups and downs. Nothing frees me more than writing. My biggest prayer is that my words help someone who is going through rough times and makes them smile...or at least laugh a little.
