Chicago is quickly becoming one of the most violent cities in the country and now another body is added to the count. Hadiya Pendleton was senselessly gunned down yesterday as she found shelter from the rain after school. She had just performed with her school band at the Obama Inauguration last week. She was only 15 years old. Her death adds to the toll of over 42 people shot in Chicago in the month of January. The most violence in that city in over a decade.
There is gun violence and these type of stories all over the United States everyday that go unnoticed, except by the people are affected by the unnecessary loss of a loved one! It takes a huge story like Newtown and other mass slayings for Congress to even begin to notice! When will it end? How much more can and will we take?
