Are we going to be led by healers who say, let’s have a conversation together, or are we going to be led by people who divide us? My fear is that it will be used by some people to further divide the nation and further polarize it.

Just remember Trayvon, as Sabrina always said. It could have been your son, could have been my baby, could have been anyone in America’s baby just walking to the store and coming back with Skittles and iced tea. Things do happen in life, but sometimes it’s not fair. It’s just not.
