0 shots. 0 killed. Today, in Chicago.
The equation here isn’t as simple as no one died today from gun violence in The Windy City. 0 shots + 0 killed = 1 mother named Nykea gets to put her kids to sleep. 0 shots + 0 killed = 1 college student named Nephtali who gets to walk across the stage, diploma in hand.
I love this city, and when I look at this mural it’s easy for me to see that I could have been 1 shot + 1 killed in Chicago but something and Some One kept me around for a reason.
0 shots + 0 killed = this kid from Chicago returns home every summer.
