The news of the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin hits close to home – for other 17-year-olds, for mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends. But the fact that Martin’s killer is yet to be arrested has marked this already tragic event with anger, confusion, and bitterness, spreading worldwide as more than a story of death, but about a flawed legal system that would allow a murderer to walk free (while arresting someone for throwing flour at Kim Kardashian). Trayvon’s story has grasped the attention of a number of notable individuals worldwide, and Dwyane Wade and LeBron James showed their support by writing respectful quotes like “RIP Trayvon Martin” and “We Want Justice” on their sneakers during their Friday-night game against the Pistons.

The entire Miami Heat team also came together for a photo, with each player donning a hoodie – a garment that has become an iconic piece of imagery and a display of support, much like a LIVESTRONG wristband or a pink ribbon. Other NBA stars showed their “hoodie” support as well; Carmelo Anthony and Steve Nash tweeted pictures of themselves while Amare Stoudemire spent the entire pre-game shootaround on Friday – with the hood on – to pay his respects. With Trayvon’s story becoming one of the top headlines in the nation and thousands of supporters voicing their concern through petitions and rallies, we hope a swift act of justice comes soon.
