What if George Zimmerman was Remorseful?

Imagine a man who was wracked with guilt over killing an innocent young boy. He then dedicated his life to finding atonement.

Said person was handsome and talented, who had a great job and a lot of friends.

This fictional George Zimmerman would be kind and nice and if married, not an abuser. And if dating, not an abuser.

No choking of the ladies.

George Zimmerman of our imagination would reach out to the Martin family, especially Trayvon's parents. He would start a fund, perhaps for a scholarship or justice awareness, and raise millions of dollars.

It would never replace a young person stolen at 16 from people who loved him, but it would be much better than touring the gun factory of the weapon used to murder a teenager who had been unknown to his assailant.

If there were overlap between fiction and fact, and our new and improved George Zimmerman had anger issues and suffered from aggression, then he would seek counseling. Or therapy. Or something to make certain that the parade of people in his life who were injured, with one murdered, would cease.

The George Zimmerman that we construct would not put hideous paintings on eBay with sardonic and sly commentary. To wit:

"First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman. Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman"

He would be loyal, hardworking and kind.

In our dreams.
