Chicago saw more than 500 homicides last year - more than New York City, which has three times its population. But it's the killing of a teenage girl who performed at President Obama's inauguration that has brought the violence into national focus.
First Lady Michelle Obama attended Hadiya Pendleton's funeral last Saturday - and tomorrow night, Hadiya's parents will be the First Lady's guests at the State of the Union address. The President will also visit his adopted hometown on Friday to speak about gun violence.
