Farrakhan Marches Through Chicago 'Hoods For Peace Rally
The minister hopes to bring an end to the gun violence.
Tired of hearing about the senseless gun and gang violence swallowing the city of Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam troops marched through some of the most effected neighborhoods offering words of peace and wisdom.
The Final Call gave a description of the event:
Dozens of residents of the city’s Auburn-Gresham neighborhood on July 16 and South Shore neighborhood on July 23 had that experience as the Minister led the Fruit of Islam into South Side streets and hundreds of other Muslim men fanned out across the country in over 100 cities in efforts to bring peace and hope to violence-plagued neighborhoods.
Minister Farrakhan greeted young men and women with words of strength and encouragement, while many have written off these people and their neighborhoods as problems society cannot solve...
...Women in neighborhoods broke down and cried, happy to see the Minister and the F.O.I. Children ran up to Minister Farrakhan, he hugged them. Mothers presented youngsters saying: “There’s Farrakhan and the brothers!”
Guess this shows that even the biggest and baddest still don't mess with the Nation when they come through. Here's to hoping they can patrol everyday and offer a peaceful alternative to what's happening.
