    Zimmerman family may God be with you as you move forward in your life. Forgive me if I’m not happy for you. I’m not your judge God is. I pray that you have it in your heart to public apologize to Martin family. That you will not seek to make profit from a little boy blood that is on your hand. To Martin’s please keep your son memory a live. Let his life be a reflection to the nation how far we still have to go. God is now in control of this outcome.
