What We’re Reading July 15, 2013

Good Morning U.S.A!

It was a busy weekend chock full of news that you can’t really use.

George Zimmerman as found “not guilty” on all charges and he’s walked away from a government penalty. However, his innocence only means that he will now be forced to reenter a society that may not necessarily be very friendly to him. I’m not sure that being found guilty would have been the worst thing in the world for George Zimmerman. I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of fear that he will have to live with the rest of his life. I only hope that everyone involved in the case can find some measure of peace.
