Trayvon Martin killing wake-up call for all of us

This is a parent’s worst nightmare: Your child fails to return home and you find out from law enforcement it is because he has been gunned down allegedly by the local neighborhood watch vigilante.

To compound matters, you listen helplessly as he cries out for help on a 911 call seconds before the shooting.

This is the reality for the parents of Trayvon Martin.

The truth of the matter is Martin has had a target on his back since he came into the world.
