Now, the issue is belief. Belief in the system, our criminal justice system. You all know what happened in Florida. Some are glad, some are sad. Some believe that justice was served. Others believe that justice certainly was not served.
Congratulations should not go out tonight. But more sadness that the system seemed to fail us. It failed us all as Americans. But that's not the end. The civil rights system created many great men. They say in Florida it is not about race. Yes, it all about how we view everything and the lens that we view it.
It's our world that the Lord gives us, so it up to us to make it better. A seventeen year old unarmed boy was killed, yet no one has sympathy for him. A black 17 year old child should be able to walk home from the store and not be shot. That's the takeawy and what we learned from the Trayvon Martin incident.
