I know that no words can ease your pain on this mother’s day but I, as one mother to another, will be thinking of you and hoping that you feel the prayers of so many who are praying for your healing. I hope also that you know that your son is proud and grateful for you. God bless and keep you strong in your perserverance for justice for your son.
I want you to know you are not alone this Mother Day. I think about Trayvon everyday and feel hurt that your son is no longer with us. I am very proud of you and his father for letting the world know about what happen to Trayvon. I believe that when good people die young, God has them; to help us see clearly what his life meant. He made his mark in this world and America will never forget. I will never forget.
Peace, love, understanding, and forgiveness on this Mother’s Day, Ms. Martin! I am not going to claim I understand your loss, because I don’t or that I’ve experience similar pain, because I haven’t, but I know that Jehovah GOD is in CONTROL or all things and HE never gives us more than we can bear.
I am in awe of your strength and dedication to make sure that your son’s life and ultimate death will not be forgotten and serve as an example to the world!
I hope God keeps you strong so that you can endure the long road to justice. You are a woman to be admired for strength and dignity. You have shown a nation what it means to have grace in times of hardship. You will see your son again in Heaven, and hold on to that thought.
I am a mom who has cleaned up the blood of a young neighbor after she was shot in the eye. She did survive and participated in the trial that brought her shooter to justice. We need to end the profiteering and danger in our country from too many guns. Please know that your struggle has helped wake up this country and lead us from the path of a destruction. Racial profiling and too many guns has left too many dead and too many grieving. We also need to get real about education in this country and help kids making poor choices, not suspend them from school for nonviolent infractions.
Trayvon has become a martyr for change and justice. Your son’s name, like Amadou Diallo’s name, will forever ring out as a name that sparked a community to say no more. Your son is a champion, he was and is a soul with a purpose. God bless you and please keep moving forward until justice is done. Please remember that no matter the outcome of a trial, your stance has brought justice by making all Americans look carefully at ourselves and the future we are promising all our children.
When I look at you I know what a strong woman are. You are incredible and I think that, this is what God is like. God know the desires of your hearts. He will guide you paths right I will always keep you and your family in my prayers on Mother Day’s and beyond.
As a mother to two sons, my heart breaks for you. Today and every day. I am sorry I do not have words of wisdom. I am sorry I do not understand what happened to Trayvon. But I am thinking of you and your family. I am sending you love this Mother’s Day.
With deep respect for you and yours, from my heart and my family, we want to wish you Happy Mother’s day. You will not have your kid with you, but you got now thousands and thousands of new kids, I am one of them.
I remember you and your family daily in my prayers. I have been active in the Brady campaign in my state of Virginia for many years. Although at times the fight for common-sense gun laws can be discouraging, I believe that eventually our legislators will begin to make better decisions about gun rights. I refuse to give up hope.
I know this Mother’s Day will be very hard for you. I will be thinking of you.
I simply want to say how proud I am of you. Though your heart is full you have shown grace, stoicism, elegance and the ability to articulate while the world is watches. You remind me of my own dear, dear mother. Millions of us are with you… you are not alone. My sincere heartfelt condolences for the loss of your young son.
This and all the Mother’s Days to come will be difficult, but your faith and our positive energy to you will give you some solace. Remember you are not alone. I repeat… I am proud of you and I know your son’s spirit is as well!!
God bless you!! In this very difficult time I am sure that your heart is very heavy, but it is at these very times that your strength comes from the Lord. Please rely upon the Lord because he is the only one that can ease your heavy load!! Please know that you are not alone in this, there are many, many people that are praying for you and your family and when the Prayers go up God’s Blessing come down. May his Blessings shower over you and may God’s loving arms hold you and comfort you!!!
I want you know that you are thought of in such a special way this Mother’s Day. Your tears have become ours. I want you to know that this mother and her family wish you a blessed Mother’s Day. You are loved in our hearts and remembered in our prayers.
Words can’t express how sorry I am for your loss but I hope I can soften the heavy load you and your family has experience by saying I support you 100% and that my love goes out to you and your family and I hope you can atleast be able to be at ease a little on this day with love from the dampier family
I just wanted to let you know that my family and I are praying for you and yours. God Bless you and know that you are not alone in this we are all here with you so you stay strong and know that God is by your side.
No words can express my deepest sympathy on the loss of your son Trayvon. It is not only a devastating loss for you and your family. It is a loss for us as a nation. I pray that justice is served. When I look at pictures of Trayvon his face and smile show one of joy and respect for people. I know you have a deep faith in God and that he will pull you through this difficult time. I hope you will be able to rejoice in your sons life this mothers day knowing what a wonderful place he is in and all the joy he brought to your life. We are with you!!!
I lost my daughter to gang violence eleven years ago. There is no harder experience than losing your child. The shock passes over time, years, but the unacceptibility of it all remains. I try to keep myself busy doing things to help others in need. Service has a healing balm to it. Giving brings us up out of our ashes and sorrow. You seem like that kind of person, a giving heart. Hang onto that. And God is our hope and our healing. I hold you and your family in my heart of prayers. I know how it is, and I know you will get through this. Keep the love.
Words cannot express how much your faith in God, strength, and courage have changed my life. If you are not an example of the power of God, the face of God in the midst of trials and tribulation, I don’t know what is.
Continue to know that God will bring about justice for your beloved son, Trayvon. There are many standing in prayer with you and your family. His life will not be in vain. I believe that he’s touched a multitude even though we never knew him.
God bless you and your family, and shake the haters. Justice WILL BE SERVED.
I can’t imagine what you must be going through. I am a mother of three and a grandmother of three. My heart and prayers are going out to you and your family. Not just for this Mother’s Day but for years to come.
I hope God keeps you strong so that you can endure the long road to justice. You are a woman to be admired for strength and dignity. You have shown a nation what it means to have grace in times of hardship. You will see your son again in Heaven, and hold on to that thought. I am a 31 year old black male who has been motivated to speak on change because of the tragedy regarding your son. Trayvon has become a martyr for change and justice. Your sons name will forever ring out as a name that sparked a community to say no more, your son is a champion, he was and is a soul with a purpose. God bless you and please keep moving forward until justice is done.
Enjoy your day and know that America is with you and got your back. Justice will be served, if not on earth, but on judgement day. Trayvon seems like he was a wonderful young man, and his chance to do wonderful things were taken away, but God has him now. Happy Mother’s Day and we will keep you and your family in our prayers. God Bless.
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.
