The nation's third largest city has recorded 81 murders so far in August , making it the most violent month that Chicago has seen in nearly 20 years.

Chicago , which has already recorded 462 murders this year, and its only August,has not experienced violence on this level since the late 1990's.

The latest victim was a 15 year old boy, he was shot in the head while hanging out with his buddy.  Neither of the young boys had any gang affiliation,  they were both shot for no reason.  The other boy survived, but remains hospitalised.

Chicago is such a beautiful city, a gem on Lake Michigan, but this violence is horrific,young and old being shot dead for no reason.

Something has to be done before another Mother/Father , friend, family member has to bury another loved one.
