The things Trayvon might have done

President Barack Obama, a Democrat, recently commented on George Zimmerman's acquittal. He said that Zimmerman's victim, Trayvon Martin, could have been he (Obama) 35 years ago. That statement struck me as a very deep thought.


Trayvon Martin, for all his problems as a teenager, could have become a professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago. He could have become President. He could have won a Nobel Prize for peace. He could have closed the military prison at Guantanamo Bay. He could have fixed race relations among Americans. He could have brought peace to the Middle East. He could have stopped the use of drones. He could have put a leash on the IRS and the NSA. He could have ended the Great Depression II. He could have passed the Free Medical Care Act, a 44,000 page bill which would have fixed forever the problems caused by the Affordable Care Act (a/k/a "Obamacare").

But, no, George Zimmerman messed everything up. His audacity destroyed America's hope.
