WHEREAS, emotions are running high as we continue to grieve the loss of Trayvon and the toll that the tragic events surrounding his death have taken on the community of Sanford, Florida, and other communities across our state; and
 
WHEREAS, tragic events compel us to a time of deep reflection and prayer to find strength and peace in uncertainty; and
 
WHEREAS, Floridians are unified in not only their resilience, but also in being a people of great humility, kindness, and compassion;
