21. Sometimes things like

this verdict knock the wind out of me, too. (I waited for a few days after the verdict to post an OP about it, because the cranky, snarling H2O Man had taken over my keyboard.)

I like to read Gandhi and King when I'm feeling down. Both of these giants experienced the exact emotions that you have described here so well. Both questioned, from time to time, if their efforts were in vain.

For the past 48 hours, I've been speculating -- to myself -- on what this man-child might have become, if that slimy slug had not murdered him? I thought of how President Obama said that if he had a son, he'd look like Trayvon. And hoe the young Barack had actually been an angry teen himself -- for that is the job description of teen-aged males.

We will never know. But we can work to make sure this young man's death, and his family's suffering, is not in vain.

Thanks for your response! Much appreciated.
