Yesterday, American Beau profiled the dangerous city of Chicago as the city’s murders topped forty for the month of January. Unfortunately, the news keeps getting worse as Hadiya Pendleton, 15, was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago. She was with a group of her friends when the gunman ran up on them and opened fire. Pendleton performed as a majorette in the King College Prep marching band in Washington, D.C. for the inauguration last week and was a Honor Roll student at King College Prep High School. May her soul rest in peace…so sad.
