John Ludwig could not become desensitized by the daily newscasts of Chicago gun violence.

“I’ve lived in the southern Chicago suburbs for 20 years, now, and there has always been an awareness of the gang driven violence in parts of the city,” said Ludwig, of Tinley Park. “Some of the more sensational cases would stir up feelings of grief and anger and hopelessness.

“Still, it was always remote enough to qualify as someone else’s problem.”

But in 2016 he had a growing sense that he should do something but he couldn’t figure out what that was. One night he became very agitated over that day’s senseless killing and was having trouble sleeping.
