Last night in Peoria a prayer vigil was held in honor of DeAndre Allen, an 18-year old who was killed on New Year's Day in Peoria. (Here's a link to a Peoria Journal Star article). The organizer was Carl Cannon -- a "LifeBridger." I'm so proud to say that Carl and I are becoming friends -- he's such a force in our community for justice and reconciliation!!

I'm pretty sure I met him (he probably knows my dad too or something)...I think he organized kids to go sing or something at the Pekin Prison...I dunno, the details are a little fuzzy...I believe I was in 7th grade. Anyway...just a random connection :)
