Trayvon Martin: A Life Cut Short

This is absolutely heartbreaking.

I originally read this article on At The Bar: RIP Trayvon Martin.

On February 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin walked to a nearby convenience store during the NBA half-time game. He was visiting his father and stepmother in a predominantly white town-home community in Sanford, Florida. On his way back, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, trailed him and called 911. Reportedly, Zimmerman believed Martin to be suspicious. He was advised not to follow Martin, but did so anyway even though the police were on their way. An altercation ensued resulting in Zimmerman shooting Martin dead.

Trayvon Martin, an African American high school student, was just 17 years old. The investigation is still ongoing. George Zimmerman has not been arrested with the police citing his background to be clean, even though he was arrested in Orange County in 2005. He was charged with resisting arrest with violence, but the charges were later dropped.

The Beauty of Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle Union is such a phenomenal actress, who just happens to be a former model. I don't claim to know her, but after watching her host the BET Honors (2012), I liked her even more. She's witty, classy, and beautiful.

Union is better known for her roles in Bring It On, Bad Boys II, Deliver Us From Eva, Cradle 2 the Grave, Love & Basketball, 10 Things I Hate About You, and more recently Tyler Perry's Good Deeds.

She stays very active in her acting career, considering that she has starred in numerous television shows and films. You can view her complete filmography at IMDb.
