The lives of the following U.S. soldiers were lost in Afghanistan, Aug. 2-5, 2014: 

Harold Greene, 55

Remember their families and all those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. And remember the civilians lost in the violence of current conflicts 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, Aug. 1-6:  

Orland Lomax, 28; Ramon Breceda, 16; Devin Pope, 23; Martrell Ross, 32; Jerome Harris, 17; Brian Davis, 33; Gabe Stevens, 39; Vincente Obregon, 21; Darryl Allison, 26; Kashif Tillis, 29; Jeremiah Shaw, 18

Please keep their families and others touched by violence in your thoughts and prayers — as well as the perpetrators and the impact violence such violence will have on their lives.  

The following list is sent by the Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants:

Remember the 34 immigrant detainees at the McHenry County Jail as of last week. They are from Algeria, Belize, Benin, Brazil, China, Columbia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Mexico, Poland, Romania, and South Sudan. May the outcomes be positive for all of the detainees and their families.
