So George Zimmerman, the man being maligned by many around the country without even understanding the basis for the verdict did a good deed for someone he never met. Sure sounds like he must really be an evil guy, right?
I think this case is instructive of a general trend in America that is not very good. It shows a lack of knowledge, a lack of understanding, and a lack of common sense and morality. We who live in a land where a defendant is supposed to be "innocent until proven guilty" find ourselves instead with an opposite result. Apparently since Zimmerman was found not guilty, he and his parents have had to go into hiding because of all of the death threats. Even a lady in the area who has a phone number only one digit off from Zimmerman's is getting dozens and dozens of death threats. And the President of the United States, a man wo is supposed to represent all of the people and be dispassionate in all of his public utterings has clearly chosen sides with Sharpton and the likes. Meanwhile his hometown of Chicago is a war zone with children being murdered daily and it completely escapes his attention. This is outrageous behavior and instead of being criticized for it we find the lamestream media enthusiastically endorsing it.
America, it's time to move on. There is no story here except for a tragedy that was unfortunate and did not violate the law. And Florida, despite the words of McCain and others who are always looking for a crisis, stand your ground on the "Stand Your Ground" law. It works, it reduces crime, and it has been proven to be very effective for minorities protecting themselves. Bet you won't find that statement in the news anywhere?
I pray that Trayvon Martin's family and George Zimmerman's family are both healed over time. It is time for cooler heads to prevail and stop this madness. And it's also time for us to focus on the big picture: the travesties being perpetuated on us by a government that is truly out of control and knows no boundaries. It's time, America, for us to rein her in and make sure that freedom and God lead our thoughts, words and actions.
God bless America and may she return to her roots.
