North Side Church Memorializes Chicago's Young Victims Of Gun Violence

A church in a wealthy part of Chicago’s North Side is asking passers-by to grapple with the human toll of Chicago’s gun violence. 

Lincoln Park Presbyterian has 107 laminated pictures of children and teenage victims of the city’s gun violence over the last year displayed along its sidewalk. Each laminated picture includes a name and date of death. 

The church puts up a similar display annually. This one will be up until this Thursday.
