To the Editor:

Thank you for your timely post about this latest violence in our neighborhood. What mystifies me is how violence has become such a part of the Chicago lifestyle that often it is not highlighted front and center in our newspapers or by the media. I do not understand why our mayor, our aldermen, our media talk about anything else — until the out-of-control violence of our city stops! Every child in every neighborhood of Chicago should be safe to go out and enjoy these beautiful fall days. What does it matter what else Chicago has to offer, if we all cannot be safe to go out and enjoy it? Please continue keeping the violence problem front and center, as you do here. Thank you again.
