No one was expecting millions to attend a candlelight vigil for Trayvon Martin in New York City’s Union Square tonight, but the gathering of hundreds did get a celebrity boost from “Django Unchained” star Jamie Foxx.

New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams was in attendance, sporting an “Occupy” button.
Other celebs and media personalities who didn’t attend in person tweeted their support, although as with Randi Weingarten, what had begun as an argument about racial profiling took on elements of gun control.
We remember and honor the life of Travon Martin as we walk forward in love and oneness.—
