Chicago is a beautiful, world-class city. However, like all big cities, it faces serious social issues that impact us all. You likely worry about violence, poverty, drugs, homelessness and other challenges. We wondered what Chicago kids think about those challenges, so we had 12 socially aware Chicago-area kids weigh in.
The bottom line: Our kids are very aware of the problems in our community. In fact, many of them are directly impacted by these concerns every day. The good news is that the next generation of Chicagoans is thinking about ways to make Chicago a better place for all.
