My City is Beyond Unsettled by the Fourth of July Shooting

I’m angered by the 4th of July parade shooting near Chicago yesterday. I live in Chicago, about a 40 minute drive from there. I go to Highland Park in the summer sometimes.

There’s this great music festival there called Ravinia that hosts concerts all season. Last year I saw Willie Nelson there. Previously I've seen Blondie with Garbage and X. When I was a kid, my family used to go see Peter Paul & Mary there. Beautiful setting for a picnic and music. Highland Park is a very affluent suburb of Chicago. Goes to show you no one is safe from gun violence and mass shootings that are continuing to happen every other day. #Dosomething They did something but it was not enough.

The photo is Blondie on stage at Ravinia.

New Group for Chicagoland

I recently started a Facebook group called "Service Exchange for People with Disabilities in Chicago." The idea is to create a tight knit community that helps and supports each other. I'm hoping we will be able to help each other out with things like rides to appointments, cleaning the house, etc. It's for people who identify as disabled as well as their loved ones in the Chicago area (including surrounding suburbs). If you're interested, please join!
