Too Young to Die losing a generation.
Chicago, Illinois USA
Sheila Rush (left) , along with friends and other community organizers celebrate the one-year anniversary of Damien's death. Damian Turner, 18 years old and full of dreams, volunteered as a youth leader in the Woodlawn community group STOP. A stray bullet hit him while he was listening to his iPod outside his own house. Damian's family and friends say that Damian's death could have been avoided if he was transported to the University of Chicago hospital, which was less than a mile from his house. Instead he was taken to a hospital almost 10 miles away.
