On October 23, 2012 I departed to Mexico. We traveled to visit family and celebrate the day of the dead- el Dia de Los Muertos.
Day: February 19, 2013
On January 30, 2013 Hadiya Pendleton was shot when an individual jumped a fence and opened fire on her and a group of her friends. For some reason, when I heard that Hadiya was killed, the news didn’t hit me as hard as when I heard of shootings in the past. The shooting epidemic sweeping our nation makes me fear desensitization to gun violence is becoming the norm for our country.
