Trayvon Martin case should inspire us to take action for better community

It is now three weeks since the jury handed down its not guilty verdict to the court and made George Zimmerman a free man. Cable news extracted its market share, transforming the trial into a worldwide phenomenon. Americans marched and listened to speeches in communities, mostly from the leadership of the African-American community. We have heard many folks, including legal experts, speak about the "should have" decisions and the strategy of the legal teams, as well as speculation about the actions of the defendant and the victim Trayvon Martin. There comes a time, however, when we as a nation must move beyond "should have" and begin learning lessons.
