Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin (Sybrina Fulton & Tracy Martin)

"Trayvon came out screaming. After they cleaned him off and wrapped him in a blanket, the nurse laid him on my chest and I thanked God for this miracle, this ultimate blessing. I could feel his heart beating so fast, right alongside mine, so close that it made me cry. Then and there, I made a promise: to do my best for this child, as a mother, an example, a counselor, and a friend."

This post is extremely overdue. I'm so glad that Trayvon's life story has been immortalized. I hope writing this book was therapeutic for Sybrina and Tracy. Rest in power, Trayvon.
