Never Forget: Sybrina Fulton Talks About First Holiday Without Trayvon And More

December 29, 2012  |  



Ten months after her son was killed, Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, says she’s ready for justice to be served in 2013. She spoke with about her first holiday season without Trayvon, her thoughts on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, and her hopes for 2013:

This year has been bittersweet. The bitter part is that I lost my baby boy. The sweet part has been the show of support that we have received from our community and from the world. We are thankful. 

This is our first holiday season without Trayvon, and I have to admit, I’m having a difficult time. I’m an emotional rollercoaster. Trayvon loved the holidays, especially Christmas and Thanksgiving. He always looked forward to those holidays. But while I am sad I’m reminded that I have another son that I’m trying to help get through not having his younger brother around.

Sybrina continues to ve a very strong woman. You can read the rest of the touching message over at ESSENCE.

      “Don’t Worry”?!?!?!?! To this 21 y/o and everyone else ‘liking’ the “Everafter” religiousity bullspit….please sit down somewhere – where you can take notes in a Grief Section of Life. There is NO comfort to be found in the wake of a sudden death of a loved 1 to hear “jesus n them’s bestiest best friends. smile!” Her baby was murdered by a racist whom many pity….whose father was granted TV Primetime to make THAT spigger a victim. Almost 10 months later, no justice. There’s no peace to be found in that comment. I know you meant well and probably don’t even know any better. But as a woman who suddenly lost a baby AND fiance unexpectedly…..I think I’d hafta mail BACK a sympathy card with such clueless words.
