teen. When asked whether he was comforted by the Zimmermans' apology, Martin called it a "hard and fair question."
"There's no winner in this situation," he said. "Obviously, we are devastated more. But we continue to pray that we'll find peace and strength to be forgiving parents."
Martin and Fulton have started a foundation named after their son and say they hope his death and the trial can serve as a catalyst to bring the country together.
