Trayvon is actually a beautiful name and I never even thought about how his parents must have felt when they watched it turned into the most horrific verb in the entire English language.

My own kid was Christophered. I don't know what that means.

It means his thread ran out. It's not fair or right, and not everyone gets a skein of the same length. You did the best that you could, and that's all anyone could expect of you. Trayvon's parents did too. Sometimes it's just not enough. I wasn't able to do enough to save any of the people I lost. I just hope I live long enough to make them proud of me.
