One year later, Trayvon Martin to be remembered with candlelight vigil2/26/2013
Tuesday marks one year since the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. His parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, will mark the occasion with a candlelight vigil in New York City's Union Square, along with their attorneys, friends and well-wishers. A moment of silence has been scheduled for 7:17 p.m., the time that Martin was shot by neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman. Martin would have turned 18 on Feb. 5, and a peace vigil was held that night in Sanford, Fla., in his honor. Martin's parents did not attend that vigil, opting instead to remember their son's birthday privately. "There's something coming out of this, and that's understanding," attorney Natalie Jackson said of Martin's death. "Sanford will be a better community for it." [Source]
