There are no words that I can say that probably haven’t been expressed to you before. Your grace, faith in God, and dignity have been such a wonderful example of such a Godly woman. It has NOT gone unnoticed. In the midst of the storm, you have stood up for one thing: Justice for your baby boy, Trayvon.
Through it all, those invisible footsteps of the heavenly Father are carrying you. You have the love, support, prayers, and encouragement from not just black people, but people of every persuasion and nation who believe that wrong should be punished. Most importantly, you have the support of the Father, who sees you and your family’s heart and pain, and who said, ‘He will NEVER leave you nor forsake you.” He has you.
God bless you and your family. The prayers of multitudes, including me, are with you.
Please let the memories of your son bring joy instead of sadness. I stand greatly encourage by not only the love you have for your son but the forgiveness you display towards his killer. Only a person walking by God’s grace can display that kind of courage. We love you and your family! Happy Mother’s Day!
Ever since I heard about the murder of your son Trayvon, you have been on my mind. There is nothing worse for mother. Nothing. I am a white woman married to a Mexican American and raising two brown boys. I worry for my boys, just as you’ve worried for yours these past 17 years. I want justice for your son. Justice.
I wish you strength and peace and more strength. My husband and I are watching this whole thing unfold. We will keep watching and keep talking about it. This Mother’s Day will be hard. I’ll say a prayer for you.
Stay strong and keep faith in our system of justice. There are many who will support you with prayers and with the real work of uncovering the truth. Your son didn’t deserve what happened to him. You will be in my thought and prayers — keep the faith and stay strong. So proud of you and your Husband !
I lost a son much older than your son — He was 34 years old and had died suddenly. I carried that pain in my heart for many years because a part of me had gone. When I lost my mother and father there was much sorrow in my heart but their death did not compare to my son’s death — whom I carried for 9 months. There is a difference! I felt as if I was carrying a brick on my chest but one day God took that hurt away and I was able to let go and let God! God took that heaviness away! In your quiet times, think about some of the things Trayvon use to do or say that made you chuckle and think of the sweet things that he may have done for you — and it will soothe your soul and lessen the pain! I remember my son bringing in a withered dried daisy at age four
and gave it to me and it brought a smile to my face as I reflected back!
God is with you all the way. He is your refuge and your strength, a present help in the time of trouble. Know this — Trayvon is with our Heavenly Father and you will see him again and “Oh what a great reunion it will be!” Know this — He still lives!
We prayed for justice for your son today in church. I thought of you when I saw the tears in my mother’s eyes, and thought of how much Trayvon must love you. Any child would be blessed to have you for a mother; never forget that. Your son is our brother, and we will not forget him. So long as there as mothers in the world, we will not forget you.
May God continue to keep Bless you and your family. We will continue to pray for you. My family and I feel like you are a party of our family because of your son Trayvon. We love you. Always in our prayers. Happy Mother’s Day.
Every time I see a beautiful young black boy, my heart aches for you, your family, and all that you have been going through. You are such an inspiration to other mothers- of hope, of love, and of faith. I hope that you will some day, come to a place of peace in your heart for all that you have had to face. Please know that you and your family have so much more support than you may know. What happened to Trayvon was wrong - It should never have happened. It makes me sad for you and our country - and it inspires me to work even harder for fairness and justice for all. With peace and hope.
My heart aches for your loss; for you were robbed of your child in the worst way. I am so very sorry you have to endure this pain. I hope that someday soon all people will be treated as equals, regardless of race, gender, or anything else. It makes me so very sad to know that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream still has not come to fruition….
I just want to send you a heart-felt Happy Mother’s Day wish today. I need you to know how amazing I think you are. You have touched me, and millions of other moms, with your grace and dignity through this unthinkable experience. When I want to feel angry about what happened to your son, Trayvon, I step back, think of what you would do, and say a prayer for you and your family. You have inspired me to be a better mom, woman, and wife. May this day be filled with love and special memories for you of a son that loved you greatly just like we all do. May you feel his embrace and the embrace of a nation today and everyday.
Being a mother is the most sacred of experiences in this lifetime...
And it doesn’t end once your child leaves this planet. Know that you are loved, and the world grieves with you for Trayvon. You are an extraordinary woman, and I am sending you love and joy on the Mother’s Day, and beyond. You are a true inspiration. Thank you.
So much love to you from this mother’s heart directly to yours!

You are in my prayers now and will be even more this coming Mother’s Day. My heart goes out to you. I pray the spirit and love that I send your will, will strengthen you and uphold you in the upcoming days. I remember with you, I cry with you, and I will smile with you in the future. May God comfort you as he wraps you in His loving arms and provides peace to your soul.
Sybrina, Your grace and composure assure me that Trayvon was taught love and respect from you. As you’ve said our hearts are all red,not black or white. Let yourself cherish those special times with Trayvon. You’ve touched my heart and please know the many hearts you have touched as my heart goes out to you.
I don’t know your pain,only mine for you. Your loss is one that I can’t imagine. This I do know, that the blood of Jesus, our Lord and savior is all over you and will protect you from all the hurt you are experiencing at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you everyday and I hope you will enjoy your Mother’s Day. Travon is with you today and even on Mothers Day! God bless you.
Mother’s day is just around the corner, while justice that will be served is right up the block. No one really knows you’re pain, as our legal system needs to be changed. You have given strength to those who are weak, stood you’re ground without even a frown. Mother’s Day will never be the same (for you) while the world remembers Trayvon Martins name. You’re son spirit will follow you every where you go — and just to let you know happy mothers day.
In light of all of the hell you have and are currently enduring, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to you Woman of God and thank you.
You have had the right to act like a fool as a result of losing your son to pure carelessness. But you have not. You have set an example to the entire world of what the behavior of a Believer is supposed to be. Thank you for you for your bravery. Thank you for your strength. Thank you for showing class. Thank you. God bless you and Happy Mother’s Day to you. You are in my prayers.
I want to take this opportunity to tell you that America celebrates you on Mother’s day. Most of us never met you in person. Unfortunately, we came to know you because of the shooting of your “so handsome” son by a bigot. Dare I say.
I wish we had met you in a more positive way. During your ordeal you have shown class and decency while your heart bleeds for Trayvon. I cry with you. I pray with you and for you. Though a mother myself I would never know how deep your pain is. But I want you to know that I mourn with you. America mourns with you.
May you continue to have strength and courage to carry on!
But YOU are a shining example of what mothers are, to the core. Your turmoil and suffering burns me, as I am certain it does all other mothers who know your story. But you have found strength in this, the lowest point in your life, and used it to push up and onward, toward the resolve and just retribution for your sons’ life. That is beauty… That is courage, that is verve, that is wisdom, that is fortitude, that is devotion, that is perseverance, that is protection… that is… a mothers’ love in its’ purest, infinite form… and you are an admirable marvel for it. Something like this could ruin a woman of lesser character— but your heart and mind have proven you have wells of fight in reserve. I am in awe of you, dear woman.
You deserve the best as mother anyhow, but my wish to you is that you may find some peace; that you may know some small feeling of momentary harmony on the upcoming holiday. I know you have so many people who feel mountains of empathy for you, let them lift you up that you may have a good day… that is my wish for you… just to have a good mothers day…
Let us pray for peace and justice in this situation. May God grant you his peace in this time of trouble. We hope that you and your family find comfort in knowing that many people are praying for you and your family. Wishing you a happy Mother’s Day!!
I wish you hope and love and perseverance this Mother’s Day and know that many moms across the US and Canada and in other parts of the world are standing with you. No one should have to experience what you and your family have and hopefully Trayvon’s killer will face justice. One thing that has been denied your family - justice.
I know this mother’s day will not be easy for you and i know your heart is breaking. Please know the one’s who support Justice for Trayvon Martin will be keeping you in our hearts and thoughts and prayers. No words will make the pain go away but know he is watching down on you and will be shining his and gods light on you. Happy mothers day..
