While I can’t even begin to imagine your pain I would still like to offer my love, support and admiration to you. Your faith and courage and ability to stand when many of us would’ve fallen and still be on the floor is nothing short of remarkable. You are an inspiration and a blessing to women everywhere.
Happy Mother’s Day to you from one mother to another may God continue to bless and keep you in all that you do. My family and I stand with you and your family on your quest for justice.
The memories we hold deep within our heart, can bring us joy, or tear us apart. They surface when we’re lonely, they make us cry, As we sort through painful memories, of days gone by. They can cause such sadness and heartache too, We even wonder at times if we’ll make it through.
The memories are our past, we never let them go, They are also our future to help us grow. Memories within the heart, always stay, But given time, the pain, will go away.
Give yourself the time, for when heartache is real You need to grieve before wounds can heal. Then you can look back, once in awhile, And memories will be there to remember with a smile.
They’ll bring you comfort, there’ll be no more pain, And your heart will be free… to love again.
Happy mothers day from a very big family u gained <3
I am a mother of 4 children. I first became aware of Trayvon’s death during a Sunday morning news program in March. I was so outraged that immediately I went to the change.org site to sign your petition. I have followed the updates ever since. My heart cannot know your pain. All I kept thinking once I learned of this horrible tragedy is how easily this could have been anyone of my children or their friends. And how together through your petition I wanted to help bring about change. A Mother’s love and bond with her child has nothing to do with the color of skin. The connection with our children is timeless. It stretches from the past—even before they were born and reaches into the future. Our children have always been with us and will always be with us. It is a spiritual gift God has given every Mother. Trayvon lives on spiritually and has become every Mother’s son. In his memory, I wish you a blessed day with your loved ones.
I just want to send some love and support your way. I am from Lansing, MI and I have literally made my sick over the Trayvon Martin Shooting. I am a black woman with a son 19 years old and my heart cries daily for your son, your pain and your entire family.
Black people have endured so much injustice, that it’s hard to have faith in the justice system. I walk with faith and I know that God will see this thru. I have not lost a son, but I have lost my mother and the pain from losing my mother was unbearable, I don’t want to imagine the lost of a child. God bless you and keep your head up, I will continue to pray for you and his father, and the rest of your family.
I just wanted to say you are not alone. The world is still watching over you and your family. I can’t even imagine how you feel on this Mother’s Day, I have three kids myself and Lord Have Mercy, I can’t even put the words in writing how I would feel if someone did this to my child. I will continue to pray and hope justice be served for your family. Trayvon will not die in vain. Things must and will change behind all this corruptness as a nation. Justice will prevail in Jesus name Amen!
I can’t even free right saying have a Happy Mother’s Day because how can one do that under the circumstances. Just know he is sending you strength and love from above. He is saying I have one of the Best Mother Ever! Know that! True Spit!
I wish you for this upcoming day, STRENGTH, COURAGE, CALMNESS, & GOD’S PRESENCE ALL AROUND YOU.
Mother to Mother: You Are Forever Trayvon's Mother
I just wanted to let you know that my heart, prayers, frustration and tears are with you on this, which has to be yet one more intensely, heart-wrenching, unspeakably painful day for you. I write to thank you for what you have done for every black mother, every brown mother, every mother of a young son who lives with that unspoken fear that we all carry so deep within our hearts. You spoke our pain with your pain. You spoke our truth with your truth. You answer our deepest yearnings with every small, large and painful thing you do to pursue the justice that your sweet beautiful boy, Trayvon, so rightly deserves.
Thank you for your courage. Thank you for bearing your soul to give the world a glimpse of our stories, our hearts, and our love. Your son is our son. Your love is our love. Your heart is our heart. Your story is our story. Your pain is the burden we mothers carry as our sweet adorable black and brown boys begin to blossom into manhood. Trayvon’s life and sacrifice will never be in vain, will never be forgotten and will be the story of every black boy whose story was never told, whose mother still weeps, and for those of us who still lives in fear.
I watched my sister Rachael grieve the loss of her only son 3 years ago when he was 19 years old. The depth of her pain could never truly be spoken with words. The anguish within her could not be comforted by the human touch. The longing in her heart remains with her to this day. She heals slowly, reluctantly and with the inspiration of the love she and Ryan shared.
She and I cry, grieve and forever stand with you in God’s love, tenderness and power through our most heart-felt prayers. You are forever, always and never-ending Trayvon Martin’s mother.
From another mother of a young black son. We mothers love you and thank you.
Hello how are you I am pretty sure it is not easy not having your baby with you but I know and you know in your heart that he is in a better place and I am sure there is not one day that goes by that you don’t think about him I couldn’t imagine going threw what you are going threw but there are people out here who feel your pain and who supports you and who wants justice I myself am one of them so with that being said god bless you and your family and Happy Early Mother’s Day
Sybrina, may love of not just God but of the human race be around you — to hold you, and comfort you on Mother’s Day — you will always be a mother. No one can ever take that away from you-no one can destroy that, and your love and Trayvon’s love will live on — it is not gone. Love lives forever — love lives forever. I know Trayvon is looking down. He sees us and he knows what is happening. He knows he is loved. He is loved. Believe that Trayvon knows he is loved — that is important and I believe your son will prevail. He will be vindicated — Love to you and here is a hug.
Dearest Sybrina: Please know that you are in my heart on Mother’s day, and every day, and may these words comfort you.

You were his bright & morning star, you loved him near & from afar. His childhood was the sweetest thing because you made his small heart sing. You loved him well, & so he knew, that you would always see him through. You kissed his hurts & calmed his fears, watched over him throughout the years.Your steady pace & kind warm heart, helped Trayvon have a healthy start.
The things he learned from you were good, all those things YOU understood: Like patience, kindness, warmth & love, instilled in you from God above! These gifts you shared with an open heart, the gifts that gave Trayvon his start. And you never knew the impact of, all you did, & how it was, because you did it out of LOVE! So please know, Dear Sweet Mother, as you read this today, that you molded & shaped him from God’s gentle clay, and how happy he was that you filled their lives, with BEAUTY & GRACE & FAMILY TIES.
Honey Happy Mothers Day…….My thoughts on that day will surly be on you and your family….May God keep you covered….A special thanks to your family for fighting for our kids….God bless you Sybrina…you are truly a queen ing myself eyes….I pray God gives me that same strength as a woman he blessed you with ma….Trayvon touched us all, don’t give up baby because we won’t…..HAPPY MOTHERS DAY, SYBRINA!
Know as a mother, your strength in a time of such mourning is inspiring. Makes me want to be a better mother and person. My heart and prayers are with you today and everyday.Your son is truly a angel because look how much change his death has inspired. Much love to you and yours, you are not alone in this. Remember God is great… please continue to keep your faith in all things good and holy.
I pray that the Lord provide you peace and comfort on Mother’s Day and Everyday to follow…knowing that your angel Trayvon will remain forever by your side spiritually and in your heart. On Mothers day… remember all the things he did to bring you so much love and joy… I believe Trayvon would smile and say. Sorry I had to physically depart from you so soon Mom… but spiritually… I will remain Forever close and connected to you… I Love You!!
I’m at a loss for words… You have handled yourself with such grace and dignity though this entire ordeal. I have so much respect for you. I’m so sorry for your loss, and I know Trayvon is looking down smiling right now and happy that so many are sending you these Mother’s Day wishes! You have a special angel watching over you.
I wish you healing and for you to find happiness once again. I’m so sorry for all you have been through….
There are no amount of words that can make this situation any easier…nor do the comforts of loved ones seem to help. My sister died in an inhumane way and the police did nothing to the females responsible… it wasn’t until Feb. 26th, 2012 that I found a way to help another family not suffer the regret of not finding justice in a wrongful death of their own. I have stood outside on a busy street holding up a huge sign with my right arm just 3 wks after having surgery on it getting the vehicles attention and having them honk if they too believe in Justice for Trayvon Martin. A kid that none of us knew personally but touched us deeply. You truly are the strongest mother I have ever seen, the way you have presented yourself in such a respectful manner and never jumping out of your character is a trait I wish I had. I hope one day you can find peace in your heart knowing that Trayvon is with the lord smiling down on you and your family. Every shine of sun is his smile, and every drop of rain are tears of joy. Stay blessed and you are truly truly a mother with a golden heart!
I have been thinking of you quite a bit. I too lost my son, His name was Corey and he died the night of his 18th birthday February 19th ‘07. I raised him myself since he was 1. My only child. I just passed the 5 yr mark.
Firstly, so you know me , I am a 56 yo white woman and was a working RN through my son’s lifetime. He was very involved in musical theater and chorus, had a great deal of friends. On the first Mother’s Day those kids left a huge card in my door that they all signed and it meant the world to me . So I hope you feel the love coming to you from people who are sending thoughts and love to you.
Please take some time off now and stay in a quiet and calm environment w just those who are close to you. Mourning is a long and tough process that takes lots of time. Music and exercise helps, so does screaming in a pillow.
Let others represent you in public as much as possible. Find a therapist you feel good with. (I found this very difficult) Parents who have also lost children are the best to talk with.
I wish you strength and love through this most difficult of all times.
Although I have never been a mother, I still share in your pain. My heart and my sincerest condolences go out to you and to your family and friends. Please know that so many people are praying for you and are there for you. And I am only one of them. If you do believe in God and in HIS WORD, rest assured that Zimmerman will not get away with this. GALATIANS 6:7 tells us that… “For God is not mocked… whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” And in this case… this is Zimmerman. I will keep praying for all of you and just know that God has tired of all this injustice, especially when it comes to the outright murder of a young man. I leave you with this blessing for your family and friends, from the Old Testament, The Book of Numbers, Chapter 6, Verses 24 through 27….May the LORD bless thee and keep thee, may the LORD make HIS face to shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee, The LORD lift up HIS countenance upon and give you PEACE! I pray this prayer and blessing in the name of JESUS. Be encouraged Ms. Fulton, God sits high and looks low and HE is still on the throne. It may take a while, but justice, God’s justice, will have it’s way in this.
I pray every day that God continues to give you and your family the courage and strength needed to stay the course on your quest for justice for Trayvon. You must know that you have inspired and touched the hearts of so many mothers of all races who could have easily been in your shoes. I know there is no explanation for the senseless act of violence that stole the life of your beautiful young son but know that God will never give you more than you can bare — and you have shown your strength and a mother’s love to the world.
I wish you a peaceful and blessed Mother’s Day. I cannot imagine how you will feel without Trayvon beside you in the flesh, but I know he will be with you in spirit. Continue showing America and the world what Mother-love looks like.
Your family is always in my thoughts and prayers. You experienced what no mother living in 21st century America should — the thoughtless and tragic loss of her child. Sometimes our country saddens me and sometimes it surprises me, like when millions of us used our voices to let the world know how we feel about your son, Trayvon. And, like the wonderful woman you are, you continued on your journey as a mother, seeking answers for your son’s untimely demise. Your strength, courage, emotion, and dedication exemplify what it means to be a mother.
Hi My name is Stephanie, I too share the same grief that you will be having on Mother’s day this year I have for the last 7 years. My heart goes out to you for I know personally the pain that you feel and will have though out the rest of your life. I can tell you this it does get a little easier to deal with, the only way that I have made this far is God’s grace holding on to God’s promise, knowing and believing that I will these days see my son again is what keeps me going. My prayer for you is that you find comfort and peace in Christ. I am here for you if you need to talk about.
