Trayvon Martin Gunshot to the Heart

George Zimmerman shot
I found this picture at

Trayvon Martin
in the heart.

Trayvon Martin
did not die instantly.

The bullet that killed
Trayvon Martin
punched a hole in his heart.

Trayvon Martin’s
heart kept pumping,
blood gushing into his chest.

Trayvon Martin
remained alive
for a few minutes

The official time of death:
7:30 pm.

Reading this, writing this, pains me so much.  This is so horrific, I feel like I should apologize for posting it.  I’m posting it because my mission here is to write about page 1 news stories.
