Violence in Chicago
Yesterday Emma was blissfully shopping at Target in Uptown. I know this because she posted a picture to Instagram of the store. Moments later she sent me a text saying there was a shooting at the McDonalds a few blocks away. Five people were shot.
Here is where the homeless and hungry line up for meals and meetings. It is directly across the street from the McDonald's.
Emma's friend Anthony was in line.
He was hit with shrapnel in the hand and went to the hospital.
He is doing fine but is very frightened.
It was a fine summer day
Lost boys shot
What will ever stop the violence?
Who can hope?
Will you join me in praying for the vulnerable people living in violent places....like Chicago?
