LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A protest was held in Louisville following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Wednesday evening at Waterfront Park Community Activist Christopher 2X arranged a memorial that included a silent reflection and a balloon release.

Many of the people not far from Trayvon's age who attended the memorial said they work hard to keep themselves and others from getting into dangerous situations.

Several in attendance held pictures of their own loved ones while they said prayers and listened to speakers.
