    I March to Cure the Blindness


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Gsquared2 La'Keitha Daniels, an attorney from Atlanta, participated at a rally at the Providence Baptist Church on Sunday and plans on marching at another rally on Wednesday. 'Trayvon could've been my brother or my son. He is from the city I was born and raised in. His mother lives in my home community. Justice needs to be served and the cries of a nation need to be heard,' she said. She edited this image with the iPhone photography app Instagram.

    I march with my feet for Trayvon Martin because people must see that violence like what happened to Trayvon Martin will not be accepted in our communities. I march with my words as I write letters to Sanford authorities like hundreds of others, putting pressure on law enforcement to fully investigate this case and pressure on the legislature to re-evaluate the laws that may tie the hands of justice in wake of this tragedy. I march because my soul cries out to the parent who has to bury her child because someone thought he looked suspicious or didn't belong in a neighborhood that he/she worked hard to provide.


    I march for Trayvon to teach the generations of young people watching me that organizing and harnessing the power of thousands CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.


    I march to cure the blindness that has continued to plague our country. Because African-Americans now have the right to vote, are not counted as 3/5 of a person, and have a Black President, people think the struggle for equality is over. I march to remove the rose-colored shades from the blind and reveal that we are NOT living in a post-racial society. We have come a long way. But we still have a mighty long way to go.
