Trayvon Martin Vigil In Macon

In the wake of the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, several events are being held across Georgia. In Macon, a march was held Tuesday afternoon in support of Trayvon Martin.

Greater Friendship Missionary Baptist Church is hosting a prayer vigil Tuesday evening where attendees are planning to wear hoodies.

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Summerow is pastor of the church. He says marches and vigils are a time to come together to heal. "Many people think we will come to point fingers or to judge the justice system, or to judge the verdict. That’s not the point. The point is when there are times of adversity that we come together for prayer. Whether we agree with the verdict or not."

Tuesday Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton posted a message on Twitter saying "God is healing my heart." Fulton also said that watching so many people come together after the verdict reminds her there's still a lot of work to do.
