Poverty can be a prison in itself

The loop, seen from behind a fence on the west side. It reminds of all the clients I met when I worked on the west side who had never been to the loop, and weren't sure how to get there. Or the woman in her late 40s who told me that her dream was to someday go to the Shedd Aquarium.


Used to illustrate a post about youth and gun violence in Chicago in the "Open Equal Free" blog. .
