The George Zimmerman not guilty decision has stirred up emotions all across this nation. Of course, anytime there is a death it is tragic. It is sad for the family of both parties involved. It's hard to think of a young 17-year old dead. It's hard to imagine the horror that was that fateful night. Our world has gotten so violent, especially since 9/11. I've even noticed people seem more paranoid and extremely insecure about our country. Could this be the culprit -- people are just plain scared?

Could this tragedy have been avoided? What are your feelings -- really? What does this situation teach our children? Because I can tell you they are watching!
