On Friday May 25, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, the parents of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen who was shot and killed during an encounter with neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman on February 26, were presented with twin plaques at a Stop the Violence rally in East Saint Louis, Illinois. Martin, who is from East St. Louis and Fulton were in town to support the campaign against youth violence. The two were presented with the plaques at the North End Missionary Baptist Church by friends from the neighborhood where Martin grew-up.
The plaques read-Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, as your friends we also mourn the loss of your son, Trayvon. In your time of need, we are an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on. We stand with you, we support your fight for justice and we pray that God will continue to be your strength.
