Trayvon Martin's mother has poured her heart out onto the social media universe in the sensational aftermath of George Zimmerman's not-guilty verdict.
With George Zimmerman's "not guilty" verdict still weighing heavily on the hearts of those with knowledge of the matter, Trayvon Martin's mother has poured her heart onto Twitter, tweeting, "Lord, during my darkest hour I lean on you. You are all that I have. At the end of the day, GOD is still in control."
Thanking everyone who supported the Martin family during the three week long trial, Sybrina called this "her darkest hour" and prayed to Jesus for help and guidance. "I will love you forever Trayvon!!! In the name of Jesus!!!"
A jury of six women found the neighborhood watch volunteer, 29, not guilty both of second degree murder and the lesser charge of manslaughter. The courts accepted that Zimmerman acted in self-defense when he shot and killed the 17-year-old teenager as he walked home from a sweet shop to his father's house in a gated community in Sanford, near Orlando, in February last year.
Both Tracy Martin and Trayvon's mother chose not to be in the Seminole Circuit Court when the jurors announced their decision just before 10:00pm. "God blessed me and Sybrina with Tray and even in his death I know my baby proud of the FIGHT we along with all of you put up for him. GOD BLESS."
The family's attorney, George Crump, said that they will still be pursuing a civil case against George Zimmerman.
