Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle prepares to march with other community members , friends and family of Damien Turner. The Protesters are demanding that the University of Chicago hospitals reopened their level 1 trauma center which was close in 1988. Damian, 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 Turner was taken to Northwestern Hospital where he later died. 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.
