Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton told NBC’s TODAY show that she believes her son’s fatal shooting death by George Zimmerman was an accident.
Ms. Fulton said:
"I believe it was an accident, I believe that it just got out of control and he couldn’t turn the clock back. I would ask him, 'Did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon?"
Fulton suggested that Zimmerman, who claims he killed Martin in self-defense, should apologize if he is remorseful.
Ms. Fulton went on to say:
"One of the things that I still believe in: A person should apologize when they really -- when they are actually remorseful for what they've done."
She also expressed sympathy for Zimmerman’s family:
"I understand his family is hurting, but think about our family that lost our teenage son. I mean, it's just very difficult to live with day in and day out.
I'm sure his parents can pick up the phone and call him, but we can't pick up the phone and call Trayvon anymore."
Ms. Fulton has stayed strong throughout this entire process and spoke true words of wisdom and kindness yesterday; the same day Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder: "A heart has no color it’s not black or white it's red, thank you from my heart to your heart." What a truly remarkable woman.
