Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, held back the tears once again as she attended a Sunday service in honor of her son at a Miami Gardens church. In a touching display, members of the congregation wore hoodies in support of the family.
Ms. Fulton attended the service at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where she was presented with a check to cover expenses for her family.
Speaking to the congregation Ms. Fulton said:
"I want to say thank you to each and every one of you. It's very difficult for me to speak, I'm always nervous every time I speak, but right now I feel like I'm at home."
Ms. Fulton has been so strong throughout this entire tragedy. After the charges against George Zimmerman were announced she told a crowd:
"We simply wanted an arrest. We wanted nothing more, nothing less. We just wanted an arrest. And we got it. And I just want to say, ‘Thank you. Thank you, Lord. Thank You, Jesus.’"
What a remarkable woman.
