CHICAGO (December 16, 2012) — Lenny McAllister, upon hearing the presidential remarks made in Newtown, Connecticut tonight, issued the following statement:

“While we collectively remember the loss of innocence with the flight of our littlest angels from Connecticut last week, the harrowing pain from Sandy Hook is only intensified by the thoughts of the ongoing urban violence that many within Chicago, including those within the Second Congressional District, continue to endure on a frightening regular basis, often in nearby communities to where both President Obama and I call home.

“I commend President Obama for his stately eloquence in delivering the solemn remarks in remembrance of the fallen Americans that we lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday.

“Just as President Obama is rightfully saddened and angered by having to attend his fourth mass shooting memorial service since becoming president, we Americans must join in that contempt, using our love for our children and their bright potential to secure the future for all of our youth from Sandy Hook to the south side of Chicago. We must push ourselves to action, promising those we lost and those we still have with us a simple vow: that the senseless trend of violence and loss of life cannot be continued any longer throughout America. Through sensible and tempered cooperation as one big team, we can stop the violence and uphold the very best of America without fear and lawlessness impinging upon our lives any longer. We can learn the lessons from the scars of the heart that we have incurred too often over recent times. I know that we will – together – and we will overcome. I look forward to the day when we succeed and I hope that this new dawn comes much sooner than later.

“May God Bless and keep the eternal souls of the heroes and loved ones from Friday’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. May God heal the broken hearts of every family member involved. May God watch over us all and may He bless the United States of America.”
