It's hard to believe it's been one year since 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed. The tragedy occurred just one week after she performed at President Obama's second inauguration.
A good student and talented young woman, Pendleton's death brought national attention to Chicago's gun violence problem. Her funeral was attended by the First Lady and President Obama mentioned her in his 2013 State of the Union address.
Pendleton's parents are organizing a mentoring program in Hadiya's honor but they talked more about how they've dealth with their loss in the past year today on WGN News.
