I wrote a post about it and decided to not publish it (yet). Everything about it --- the wording, the sentiments, my emotions were off (and perhaps a little too raw) and for this reason I haven't shared my thoughts about the Trayvon Martin tragedy.
And yes, it is a tragedy. Families are devastated and it appears as though our country is on the brink of an emotional and racial powder keg that will probably render everyone bloody, bruised and internally wounded for life.
I'm considering my words, even now. I'm trying to listen to my heart while watching "The News". And, I'm wringing my hands like my grandmother used to do when she was worried. We need to talk about this and I think I'll be ready to do so soon. Until then, I'd like to know what are you thinking about this? What are you feeling?
