On Sunday, President Barack Obama urged Americans to stay calm in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin case and “honor” the slain teen’s memory by preventing similar tragedies in the future, according to Yahoo News.



“I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken,” Obama said in a written statement released by the White House.

“I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son.”
