Hadiya’s parents reflect on death of daughter: 1-year later
Today marks one year since the murder of Hadiya Pendleton.
The 15-year-old was shot and killed at a park on the South Side, one week after performing at events for president Obama’s second inauguration.
Since the shooting, Hadiya’s parents have created a foundation to provide social, economic and educational services to people in need.
They’re also continuing to lobby for tougher gun laws.
A private memorial service will be held today at King College Prep, where Hadiya was a sophomore.
