This is eery and devastating. Young Hadiya Pendleton, who just performed at President Obama’s second Inauguration, made this video a little over 4 years ago as a middle schooler. She spoke of gun and gang violence and how frequently kids are killed because of it. Hadiya, 15, was murdered on January 29th, 2013 from a gunshot that wasn’t intended for her.
Here is footage including an interview with Hadiya Pendleton and an image of her from the Inaugural performance on January 21st.
