A message from Travon Martin's parents to the family of bombing victim, Martin Richard



Our hearts are broken over the tragedy in Boston yesterday. Our family sends our sincerest condolences to all of those who have been affected by this terrible situation. We especially would like to send a message to the family of eight year old, Martin Richard. We have come to understand that the peace sign that Martin is holding in a photo being circulated throughout the media, was created in response to a lesson by his teacher about the death of our son and the issue of violence. From our family to yours’, we are praying for you, thinking about you and will remember your son for the rest of our lives.

~Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin

8. That is so very sad. A child's empathy for a victim of violence, beautiful. Then a victim himself,

just so very sad.

RIP beautiful children!

10. Not unexpected from Trayvon's parents. They understand and have handled it all with amazing dignity.

It is no accident that the love of these families for their lost loved ones joins them together again, as it did in the past, although the Martins did not know until now. Our hearts go out to all of them.
