Statement regarding NOT GUILTY verdict

In light of the verdict of NOT GUILTY handed down in the case of the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman, I am humbly calling for prayer and peace among all people.  Despite how any person may feel about the verdict, the justice system, or any other aspect of the process, we must respect the legal system even if and when we do not agree with it.  As a pastor and spiritual leader within our community and the great state of Florida, we must remain civil and calm in the midst of the situation that we face as a nation.  Again, I am urging all people to remain calm, yet do not lose your resilience and resolve to see justice prevail, but we must let peace abide.  We must let it abide supreme!

 Soli Deo Gloria,

 Dr. Marcus D. Davidson
