Nykea Aldridge

(Chicago, Illinois)

 

She was a mom—I

Have to say was—on

Her way to school

To register her child,

Her younger charge

In a stroller Nykea

Was also attending

 

She was shot and

Killed; two brothers

Are now charged

 

There’s so much I don’t

Know, but we know

This:

 

Parents should not

Die this way, nor should

Anyone
