Posted on 05/03/2014 4:45:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The Trayvon Martin Foundation will host a two-day healing retreat for mothers who have experienced gun violence.
The Circle of Mothers Empowerment Retreat, spearheaded Sybrina Fulton will be held in Weston, Florida from May 16-18 and will include workshops, empowerment seminars, and keynote speeches by influencers including rapper Tupac Shakurs mother Afeni Shakur.
Fulton is inviting all mothers, not just African-Americans, who have lost a child. The loss of a child is unbearable, she said in a statement. The goal of this retreat is to gather together women, who like myself have experienced every mothers nightmare.
Both Shakur and Fulton have lost sons very publicly and have transformed their loss into social change. Both hope this weekend will help mothers by giving them the tools to take the progressive steps forward towards healing, said Fulton.

My heart goes out to mothers who were innocent victims, not thugs like Martin.
It should be for victims of black violence, not perpetrators of it.

Of course, there was that, what, 6-year-old kid that was killed by Tupac’s pistol that was picked up after he dropped it?
The story goes is, it “went off” after being picked up.
I just read a few lines about that a couple weeks ago.
Sounds a little off, to me.
Host one called “Victim of Democrat Violence”, you could pack the Rose Bowl.
I hope every one realizes that this Trayvon Martin “foundation” is simply a way for Sybrina Fulton to have money to pay her travel and other expenses and also to place her on salary for her “services.
This farce is being held at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa. The place is given good marks at tripadvisor, mediocre at Yelp. I can’t imagine what sort of high-end location would want to associate with this type of thing.
Trayvon Martin Foundation To Host Summit For Mothers Who Have Lost Children to Violent People.
There fixed it
Momma dogs invited?
It’s not gun violence,it’s people to people violence.A gun is an inanimate object,has no mind or will of it’s own.
Most of them have been killed by black gang-bangers.
Socialists/Marxists are using this woman,she’s just too stupid to realize it.
Sybrina Fulton did not raise Trayvon full time past the age of 2.
She and her estranged husband/boyfriend, have consistently been in the media, presenting themselves as a couple, and presenting their lives as having been an intact family, in which they were raising their son.
In fact, Trayvon was raised in a variety of ad hoc arrangements. This mother, while she may feel grief, cannot feel the same grief as a mother who actually raised her children. Sorry, if this sounds heartless, so be it.
Based on the Martin case, and how this has been portrayed by the liberals, the media, and the race baiters, you would swear that the biggest threat to young black men was a White Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer.
In fact, by far, the biggest threat to young black men are other black men with guns. But, why let the facts get in the way of the liberal narrative which has been constructed?
She didn’t lose a child to violent people. She lost a child due to his propensity for violence.
I would love to see financial statements from this foundation. It would be interesting to see who donates, what the expenses are, and who the salaried employees/directors are.
Indeed I have to wonder whose idea it in fact was to try to trademark her son’s name? I suspect an Al Sharpton might figure prominently in that stunt.
“She lost a child due to his propensity for violence.”
She may have lost a child due to her poor parenting skills,but she’s not prepared to even consider that possibility.
Bonaventure is practically out in the middle of the Everglades. One of the only good things about Ft. Lauderdale is that it has a decent beach (though you have to pay to park).
If you’re not near the beach in Ft. Lauderdale (or on Las Olinas), then you might as well be in Ocala.
Will the workshops include how to break into people’s houses? Or how to roll a joint? Or how to beat someone near to death?
They should have this conference in Chicago.
Ten bucks says someone gets shot in some stupid argument.
***Or how to beat someone near to death?***
How to beat someone near to death and not get killed doing so.
Fixed it for ya.
The St. Skittles Foundation....Ha !!
he met his demise a little sooner than he might have, but he would still be in the same place by now, or in a year or two.
He was headed for jail, and an early grave. Zimmerman jsut gave it a jump start.
Thx for your input. As the late great Paul Harvey would say, you’ve given us “the rest of the story.”
“I would love to see financial statements from this foundation. It would be interesting to see who donates, what the expenses are, and who the salaried employees/directors are.”
Me too! I’m sure we’d see a real rogues’ gallery of the “usual suspects”.
Trayvon should NOT have broken George Zimmerman’s nose.
Trayvon should NOT have given George Zimmerman two black eyes.
Trayvon should NOT have repeatedly slammed George Zimmerman’s head on the pavement.
Trayvon should NOT have gotten suspended from school for possessing traces of marijuana.
Trayvon should NOT have stolen 12 pcs of ladies jewelry, and a mans watch.
Trayvon should NOT have kept a flat head screwdriver described as a burglary tool, in his backpack.
Trayvon should NOT have had a criminal past of theft, hiding and acting suspicious.
Trayvon should NOT have encouraged ... fellow thugs to commit murder with the tweet, Plzz shoot da #mf dat lied 2 u!.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - Hey, are you following me?
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - Ummm, yes.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - May I ask why?
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - Well, uh, we've had a number off robberies in this neighborhood lately, and I don't recognize you...
TRAYVON MARTIN: - Oh, well, I'm Travon Martin, I'm spending the summer at my uncle's in unit 12. I expect you'll see a lot of me this summer.
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: - OK, thanks, good to know. I'm George Zimmerman, by the way.
They shake hands.
TRAYVON MARTIN: - No, thank you for keeping an eye out for your neighbors!
The “Trayvon Trail of Tears & Racketeering” continues.
Do you think they might ever host a summit for mothers of Black children lost to Black violence? I’m willing to bet the attendance might be just a tad higher. And yes I know..............RACIST!
If TM had a real Mother he might still be alive today!
Martin has become a money making industry. Hey! Anytime you get a chance to make some big bucks off an idiot getting himself killed, go for it!
Should be a seminar for “Mothers” on how to control those “Little Trayvon’s” that play the knock out game, break into houses etc. etc.
Probably how to make “lean” or “drank” as well.
Skittles and Purple Drank will be served poolside after the seminar. :-)
I’m done caring about this idiocracy we live in now.
Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Trayvons
Trayvons ain’t easy to love and they’re awful damn dumb.
They’d rather shout rap songs than go to school and learn.
WorldStar HipHop and knockout game videos,
And each arrest begins a new sentence.
If you don’t understand him, an’ he don’t die young,
He’ll prob’ly just OD.
Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be Trayvons.
Don’t let ‘em be burglars or drink Purple Drank.
Let ‘em cook fast food and wash cars and such.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be Trayvons.
‘Cos they’ll join a gang and they’re always in prison.
Unless they meet up with a man with a gun.
A better use of their time would be to host a two day retreat on how to parent your child.
Who knows why you just had to make that lean,
who knows why you became part of the gangsta scene,
who knows who sold you all them blunts,
who understood your whistles and your grunts,
who made you assault the neighborhood watch,
whose jewelry was that you were caught with at school
who made you act the ghetto fool?
Why didnt your Crip daddy stick around,
whose head on the pavement did you pound,
who had to make a decision that fateful night,
when you left him no escape and picked a fight,
who made the choice to mock and sass,
an armed watchman (you called creepy ass),
who couldve gone home but didnt there go,
instead walked towards a six foot deep hole.
“Will the workshops include how to break into peoples houses? Or how to roll a joint? Or how to beat someone near to death?”
Don’t forger how to make that “Purple Drank”
F Trayvon’s “Dad”, Barack “the Kenyan turd” Obama
Are they serving purple drank?
Set up a stand selling skittles and hoodies. You will make a million dollars. You take checks? Just don’t cash it til the 15th.
They were going to have a summit for fathers that have lost sons, but none of them will be out on parole in time.
