Is it posible for us to take "18" Song - Dedicated to the memory of Trayvon Martin viral, in an effort to bring widespread attention to the loss of life among young Black Americans?
Yesterday I discovered a song on youtube that just begs to be the anthem we need to bring attention to the senseless loss of life of our young people. It's about the murder of Trayvon Martin, but it was written in order to apply to all of the youth who are at risk or have lost their lives for little or no good reason. It may be an oversimplification on my part but I think we should try to spread this song along with it's message and along with our message that it's time to start actively making something happen to end this attack on our young people. Jessica Ann has given us this vehicle why don't we see if we can't make a difference.
I hope at least we can get some discussion going on the topic. As for myself I'm already started, I have been pushing and sharing with friends on facebook and google plus and via email in an effort to get them sharing and talking about the song and the situation. You cansee my blogpost (which is evolving with time) at- http://blackmediamine.blogspot.ca/2012/04/18-tribute-to-trayvon-and-all-black.html
or just watch the song on youtube at-
Then please come back with some feedback. I know I can't be the only one who's itching to see something positive come out of all the attention on the murder of Trayvon Martin.
