Why did you write your new book, Rest in Power?
Fulton: We wanted to tell our side of the story. We hope by us telling our story and how we moved forward and how we got back up, that it will lift somebody else, it will encourage another family that has gone through the loss of a child.
Martin: It solidifies what we are doing as parents, advocating against senseless gun violence and the loss of children.
You’ve devoted so much of your time these past five years fighting to advance your cause, channeling grief to birth a movement. Do you still grieve?
Fulton: It feels like it just happened. People won’t be able to see the hole in my heart, but hopefully they will see that I am still healing through helping others. The bigger picture is Trayvon was unarmed, and he was a 17-year-old and he didn’t deserve to die in that manner. We missed out on the rest of his life. When you lose a child, it is a different type of pain, a different type of hurt. You never get over it.
