A night to remember when Philadelphia became apart of history as we let our voices be heard as we marched from 30th street station to Love park in Honor of the 17 yr-old Trayvon Martin who was brutally murdered at the hands of 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Trayvon was reported to be a suspicious person because he wore a hoody, and was black in a gated community...and the only thing in his pockets was a bag of skittles and an arizona ice tea, and Zimmerman who has yet to be charged. "Final police crowd estimates ranged from 5,000 to 8,000!" for the #PhillyHoodieMarch!!! Riparadise Trayvon Martin and All the young souls taken too soon!!
