'We are burying our children in America'
ELGIN – When her oldest son Kenneth was shot to death in a random act of gun violence in 2005, Rev. Brenda Mitchell called her younger son, who was serving in Afghanistan.
Kenneth had just taken his younger brother Kevin to the airport when he went to go serve in Afghanistan, Mitchell said.
“A week later, I had to call Kevin to come home and to bury his brother in a free country,” Mitchell said. “It was a random act of violence.”
