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.

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.
I see the family’s still raking in the dough through various speeches and this of course.
Well... they’ll have a busy time in Oakland, CA.
