Re: The Trayvon Martin case... I hope people will continue to do the work that's needed for systemic change. People need to be more proactive and not just reactive to singular events. The situation we're seeing in this country will go on until we involve ourselves every day to work for change. I fear that after this trial has concluded most people will go back to their holes and raise their heads only when the next act takes place.
