The fragility we feel as parents is based on a world that makes trust and security rare commodities. But Trayvon Martin z"l wasn't just one of the world's children. He was a black child murdered for doing nothing more than being black. Those who would claim that this cartoon is "playing the emotion card" are right. It's every parent's emotion, but particularly those whose identities are used as target practice.
