The Daily Grind Video

Today I was extremely humbled to meet Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the proud parents of Trayvon Martin. As they came by my office during their short time in New York, I was able to see firsthand the strength of these two beautiful people. I was also inspired by meeting their attorneys, Benjamin Crump and Daryl Parks, two men who have done a remarkable job under these very difficult circumstances.  Trayvon’s brother Jahvaris also was there and it was nice to meet him as well.

As a father, I could never understand the pain they have been feeling since Februay 26th.  However, they have carried themselves with so much dignity and compassion, that it is no surprise that the novement for justice for their seventeen year old son has followed their lead.  I am in awe of their strength, faith and composure and all of us at GlobalGrind will do everything in our power to support their journey.
