Y’all know we have been researching in-depth the entire Trayvon Martin VS. George Zimmerman, Julison-created and Media-Hyped, narrative for over two months. The initial and subsequent research we engaged in was an effort to untangle the various web of lies and misinformation and now includes over 876 cited, and fact based, research links.
The last update(s) divided into two sections Update #26 Part-1, and Update #26 Part-2, essentially present the fact based narrative of Trayvon Martin’s life in the last year leading up to his death. These updates are generally just reflecting upon and discussing his own words. Then allowing him to tell his own story, sad though it may be, from the social media networking and conversations he left behind.
It is gutwrenching to fully digest all of the self-destructive flags that were presented by Trayvon for anyone to find, and it is heartbreaking to know that just a few moments of involvement by either of his parents into the direction of his life would, at any moment, have revealed to them where he was headed. If they would have looked at what “he was into,” and “what he was saying,” and “why he was in trouble” there were numerous opportunities to intervene and stop the downward spiral.
It really is, in the purest of all human considerations, heartbreaking to go back through his history and see, in hindsight, what became the inevitable conclusion to his life. It was so avoidable, and yet apparently too much trouble for both Sybrina or Tracy to undertake.
This is not said to diminish the responsibility of George Zimmerman for pulling the trigger, and if there was one scintilla of evidence to reflect any culpability on his part I can assure you we would highlight it with the same truthful veracity.
Alas, while Mr. Zimmerman eventually pulled the trigger which ended the physical life of young Trayvon Martin, the bricks upon which Trayvon was building his life’s path were leading to a distant and all to0 familiar destination for young black males without engaged parents holding the strong reins of guidance and support.
Trayvon was a fatherless son, and the most critical time in his life followed the end of his Sophomore year of High School. In the Summer of 2011, while undergoing rapid physical and psychological change common of a 16-year-old boy, there was no one intercepting the early warning signs of his directional identity. It was within this summer period, May, June, and July 2011, when he fully immersed himself in the “drug culture” and subsequent lifestyle. Prior to that, it was all just peer pressure and nibbling around the edges.
But following that Sophomore school year 2010-2011, his life choices took a specifically dangerous turn. Obviously he was seeking his own identity, his own sense of self, and his own capacity to engage with his friends and social circle in the manner of his choice.
Perhaps Sybrina tried, perhaps Tracy did too, only they know what combination of their current emotion is guilt or grief. But it does not bode well for either that upon the third suspension from school this year; and following on the heels of a radically altering summer of choices in 2011; and following specifically known drug use (by Trayvon’s school and his parents in February 2012), that Tracy Martin would think it was the best option, or even appropriate, to leave Trayvon alone in an unfamiliar place and head out to dinner with his fourth female companion sold to Trayvon as another mother figure.
The deflectors, and those who would desperately need to cling to the precipitous contention that only George Zimmerman was to blame, use the argument of “if only George had stayed in his truck.” Yet those responsibility-avoidance advocates fail to even consider the simple truth that if a Father had chosen to take his son to dinner with him, instead of leaving him home alone, none of this would have happened; and perhaps, just perhaps, Trayvon would have felt “wanted, cherished, or valued.”
The following sites have linked to the meticulously researched story of the final year of Trayvon Martin, much of it in his own words, and I would like to thank them for attempting to spread the truth:
…..and many, many, more, including thousands of individual people who dropped the link to this information on many other venues within the comments sections of various forums and sites. It is good to see the “truth” still holds significant value amid the furor of spontaneous judgement.
