Sybrina Fulton, whose son, Trayvon Martin, was killed by a neighborhood watch captain in February, has released a Mother’s Day video message via an advocacy group.
In the video, posted to the Martin family’s JusticeTM website, an emotional Fulton, her voice sometimes wavering, says that Sunday will be her first Mother’s Day without her son, and she says her faith and family will pull her through.
“On Sunday, I’m going to say a prayer for other mothers across the country who share this unbearable pain,” Fulton continues.
She cites statistics, saying she will pray on Sunday for the 30,000 mothers who, like her, have “lost their children to senseless gun violence,” and she calls on people to “join Florida by calling upon the governor of your state to re-examine similar Stand Your Ground laws throughout the nation, to keep our families safe.”
