Trayvon Martin’s Parents Thank Supporters

We are still devastated by the loss of our son Trayvon Martin,
and nothing can bring him back. But we are heartened to tell you
that justice may finally be served for Trayvon.
Florida State Attorney Angela Corey announced that she will
charge George Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder, weeks after
he confessed to killing Trayvon – and now he’s in custody.
For weeks after Trayvon was killed, authorities refused to arrest
Zimmerman. We couldn’t believe that in 2012, public officials
would turn a blind eye to our son’s killing. We couldn’t let
that happen.
More than 2 million people joined our call for Zimmerman’s
arrest. We are so much closer to justice with the decision to bring
charges against our son’s killer. We feel less alone knowing that
so many people stood with our family during this impossible
time.
When Trayvon was just nine, he ran into a burning house to
save his father’s life. He may be gone, but he is still our hero. We
are so thankful to all of you who fought to honor his memory.
Thank you for standing with us, and with Trayvon.
- Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton
