Bring the National Guard in to protect our children! We do not want to become accustomed to the loss of life. We do not want to hear of another child's death and go on with life as though nothing has happened. We do not want another child to die to the streets of Chicago. We are requesting that you conduct a temporary trial of National Guardsmen to come into the city and patrol. We ask that you do a gun sweep through the most problematic neighborhoods. We ask that you think of our children. Hadiya Pendleton, Johnyla Watkins are amongst so many others who have lost their lives due to senseless violence. We ask you to RISE UP and assist us in saving our babies.
