george zimmerman, zimmerman, sybrina fultonSoon after Florida special prosecutor Angela B. Corey announced that her office charged George Zimmerman for second degree murder for the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the slain teenager’s parents responded to the official announcement during a press conference in Washington, D.C.

Flanked by the Rev. Al Sharpton, one of her attorney’s and other supporters, Sybrina Fulton praised the arrest that took more than six weeks to happen.

“We simply wanted an arrest. We wanted nothing more nothing less,” Fulton said. “We just wanted an arrest. And we got and I just want to say, ‘thank you. Thank you Lord. Thank You, Jesus.”

Then, calling on supporters of all races to come together, Fulton thanked everyone who marched and protested in honor of her son.

“Secondly, I just want to speak from my heart to your heart. Because a heart has no color. It’s not Black. It’s not white. It’s red. And I want to say, thank you from my heart to your heart. Thank you.”

Tracy Martin followed with his own comments on Zimmerman’s arrest.

“We’ve got a long way to go and we have faith. The first time we marched, I looked to the sky and I just told myself, ‘when I walk, I will walk by faith.’ And we will continue to walk by faith. We will continue to hold hands on this journey, white, Black, Hispanic, Latino. We will continue to walk. we will march and march until the right thing is done.”

Zimmerman will attend a 1:30 p.m. hearing at the Seminole County Courthouse where it will be determined whether he will be offered the option of bail and stand before judge for the murder charge. If Zimmerman is found guilty of the charge, he could face life in prison.

Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s new lawyer, says that Zimmerman will plead not guilty.
