First Lady Michelle Obama will be attending the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton, the 15-year -old Chicago teen who was shot in the back during a rainstorm, on Saturday. She will be joined by White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett and Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Pendleton performed at the Presidential Inauguration a little over a week from the day that she was killed on January 29th. Pendleton’s death has brought Chicago’s already high homicide rate to the forefront of media attention and highlighted the issues of gun violence throughout the U.S.

May Her Gentle Soul Rest in Perfect Peace, Amen!
