Happy Birthday, Trayvon; This mom will never forget. [Video]
Happy Birthday, Trayvon.

Last year my friend and colleague Darryl Duncan wrote and produced this song and video in honor of Trayvon Martin and countless innocent children killed by violence.You know the story. Trayvon was an unarmed teen gunned down by George Zimmerman, an overzealous neighborhood watch volunteer who was later acquitted of 2nd degree murder and manslaughter due to the Stand Your Ground law in Florida. It sparked a national debate against racial profiling  and civil rights. Trayvon would have been 19 today.  Let this be a day of refection and positive action. Happy Birthday, Trayvon.

    I pursued a satisfying career in the advertising industry, served as a volunteer mentor and parent educator at my two (now grown up) sons' schools and have actually stayed happily married for over a quarter of a century. However, my most gratifying achievement was raising my sons well. I'm not saying there wasn't a little bit of hell raising going on, but you live and learn. Now I'm passing the knowledge on to you. My goal is to turn these nuggets of wisdom into reference books for parents.
