Actually I have to wonder what the prez would suggest we do to honor Zimmerman had he been the one killed that night. Stemming the tide of gun violence to honor Martin seems to say that the violence used to bash Zimmerman's head into the street wasn't actually violence or is more acceptable than the gun violence Z used to defend himself. This doesn't make much sense to me. A guy gets shot while smashing someone's head and we honor his memory by stemming gun violence?? That's a strange line of thought in my opinion.
Teach our kids not to physically attack other who they think have wronged them.“We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this,” Obama said in a statement. “That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”
