Remember their families and the families of all soldiers lost or injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Also 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 by violence, Dec. 5-11:  

Cedric Goodwin, mid-20s; Mutahir Rauf, 23; Guvonni Johnson, 25; Guillermo Ocampo, 19; Leonardo Matias, 21; Unknown man, early-40s

Please keep their families and others touched by violence in your thoughts and prayers — including the perpetrators, whose lives are also impacted by their acts of violence.
