BALTIMORE (AP) - The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin got a standing ovation before speaking to parishioners at a Baltimore church.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Sybrina Fulton spoke Sunday morning at Baltimore's Empowerment Temple. She told the gathering that she cries and prays every day but added, "My heart is filled right now."

Fulton told reporters that she's making such trips not just for her son, but for other young people who might be victims of racial profiling.

Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, the church's pastor, has been at Fulton's side since shortly after her 17-year-old son's death in February. The shooting of the unarmed teen sparked a national outcry. Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder and released on bond. He says he shot Martin in self-defense.
