Not Guilty Verdict for Zimmerman Trial

George Zimmerman is congratulated by his defense team after being found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin at the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center in Sanford Florida

This seriously ruined my Saturday night and has been heavy on my mind ever since.  I was sure the trial’s outcome would be in favor of justice, and sadly that has not happened.  Since the verdict, protests have sprouted across the country, most notably Sunday evening in Times Square.  Thirty minutes after the verdict was announced, Beyoncé held a moment of silence in honor of Trayvon Martin at a concert in Nashville.  Other celebrities reacted through tweets.  One of the most profound was from Lena Dunham who tweeted, “My heart is with Sybrina Fulton, Rachel Jeantel, everyone who loved Trayvon and has been sent the message that his life didn't matter.”
