Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, takes the stand during George Zimmerman’s trial in Seminole County circuit court, Friday, July 5, 2013, in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Trayvon Martin's mother has taken to Twitter again after George Zimmerman's acquittal in her son's death and says: "God is healing my heart."

Sybrina Fulton posted her message on Tuesday, three days after jurors acquitted Zimmerman of any crime for fatally shooting her 17-year-old son.

Fulton also said that watching so many people come together after the verdict reminds her there's still a lot of work to do.

Fulton and Martin's father, Tracy Martin, have pushed for limits on stand your ground self-defense laws in Florida and other states.

Martin supporters nationwide have taken to the streets to protest the verdict.

Fourteen people were arrested after multiple acts of vandalism and several assaults in Los Angeles' Crenshaw District overnight.
