Chicago kids speak out on the city's challenges


Have you seen or heard about violence in our city?

I've heard about it. I think it's bad and it should stop because people are dying. Nasir

I just heard on the news that a teen stabbed another teen because he refused to be in his gang. Riley

How could you not hear about the violence in our city? Every time you turn on the television, radio or Internet, you hear about violence in Chicago. Camryn

Even if you just watch the news, countless episodes of violence and crime happen in our city. From gun violence to drugs to rape, sometimes it seems like we've got it all. Lucy

All you hear on the news is bad people killing innocent people for no reason. Diego

There is too much gun violence in Chicago. Most of it is gang related and it seems like in most of the stories, the person doesn't have any particular reason that they want to kill the person. Max
