“Two true Chicago stories. They both happened on the same Sunday in April.
Story one: A teenager pushing a man in a wheelchair down South Michigan Avenue is shot twice in the abdomen in a drive-by shooting.
Story two: On the day before his 11th birthday, a boy riding his new bike in a South Side neighborhood is fatally shot in the head in a drive-by shooting.
Familiar stories, aren’t they? You may think you heard them in the news just the other day. You didn’t. I found both of those stories in the Tribune’s archives from Monday, April 25, 1994.” ~ Mary Schmich
