You Are There
Will I still know you in 10, 20 or 30 years? Will you still be around to play with me? I don't want to think about what will be. What ever will happen to you or to me. I will never forget today. Today is the best day of my life. Because you are there.
Chicago, Illinois USA
In Chicago, nearly 700 children were hit by gunfire last year — an average of almost two a day — and 66 of them died. That number is up over the previous year, even though the overall number of homicides in Chicago fell last year to a 45-year low.

    The innocent are the ones that always pay the biggest price. A wonderful image and a powerful description.

    They are given the terrible deaths of children in the world, if only Chicago has these numbers. The whole world is at war and in the cities there are small wars that are fought every day, when all this will change? We do not know give us the right answers. - The picture is still very beautiful and the clothing is identical between the two children of his brothers and most of them tell us "we are equal" as the best answer for this?
