We marveled at the success of the Blackhawks winning the championship. The celebration brought out 3,000 or more fans to help celebrate.

With all the crime in Chicago and Northwest Indiana, do you think we could get 3,000 citizens to come together in a large stadium to pray against violence?

Denomination should not matter. Everyone should be included — Seventh Day Adventist, Baptist, Methodist, Jehovah Witness, Catholics, etc. coming together to pray.

Many churches were filled after 9/11 with much prayer. Prayer is powerful. Yes, marches are good. More police can help, but remember, prayer can change things.

We need unity. Come on, churches.

Psalms 107:28: "Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress."

— Grace Turner, Gary
