“It’s very important, the support you guys are showing and the strength that Sabrina and Tracy and the family are showing,” “And we want to make sure we stand in support and we never forget that Trayvon served as a beacon of light to all the people out there, so you guys would never have to go through the pain and hurt that these guys went through.”
“His name will sit alongside some of the greats who lost their life to push our culture forward,” “The Martin Luther Kings, the Ghandis, that’s the intention that we set, that his name serves as a beacon of light and hope to push us in a better direction.”
