We remember with sorrow and gratitude the ultimate sacrifice by the U.S. soldier whose life was lost in Operation Enduring Freedom last week:

Patrick Quinn, 26

Remember his family and all the civilians lost in violence around the world.

From the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, the Chicago Police Dept., and the Chicago Breaking News Center, by way of Chicago Tribune’s RedEye, Thursday edition:

In the city of Chicago, the following people were killed by violence during the five days, Oct. 13-17:

Lionel Johnson, 29; Anthony Williamson, 49; Martellis Griffis, 22; William Aikens, 28; Robert Franklin, 55.

Keep their families and others touched by violence in your thoughts and prayers.
