After another bloody weekend in the city of Chicago Illinois, one can't help but wonder why the recent violence spree in the "Windy City" hasn't got national epidemic type exposure.  News headings that state 36 people have been shot in the past 72 hours have been going unnoticed?  What is wrong with this picture?  In late August (2012), at least 13 people were shot in a matter of 30 minutes.  In our opinion, the whole nation should be paying attention to whats transpiring in Chicago similar to the exposure that the Colorado shooting received earlier this summer.  The victims of these terrible tragedies need help.  We urge all who read this to google "CHICAGO VIOLENCE," each and every day gun violence is in the news.  Gangs are running rampant and families are being held hostage in their own neighborhoods and Chicago authorities need help.

A monumental, one day gang truce in the city of Chicago is being organized surrounded by a basketball tournament for four separate gang factions called “Balling For Peace.”  The games will be played on Sept. 22 at St. Sabina Church from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and some of Chicago’s most well known athletes will lend their support including Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah.  Quentin Richardson of the Orlando Magic is also scheduled to be in attendance along with former NBA great, Isiah Thomas, who helped bring this whole event together.  We can only hope this weekend is the start of a violent-free weekend in the wonderful metropolis of Chicago.
