Stray bullet kills 13-year-old girl who wrote an award-winning essay about gun violence

Two years ago, Sandra Parks, 13, wrote an award-winning essay about the constant shootings in her hometown of Milwaukee and elsewhere, and the emotional toll they have on young people like her.

Two years after she won an award for her essay, bullets shattered Sandra's bedroom window as she watched television on Monday night. The stray bullet fired from outside her home killed her instantly.

"She took it like a soldier. She just walked in the room and said, 'Mama, I'm shot'. The bullet wasn't even for her." her sister, Tatiana Ingram said.

Late Parks, who was in eighth grade at Keefe Avenue School, wrote the essay in 2016, when she was in sixth grade. The essay won third place in the contest.

"Little children are victims of senseless gun violence. I sit back and I have to escape from what I see and hear every day. When I do; I come to the same conclusion; we are in a state of chaos.

Our first truth is that we must start caring about each other. We need to be empathetic and try to walk in each other's shoes. We shall overcome, when we love ourselves and the people around us. Then, we become our brothers keeper" she wrote.

Why we can’t probe Governor Ganduje over bribe videos yet - EFCC explains

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it cannot probe Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, who is accused of receiving millions of dollars in bribe because as a sitting governor, he enjoys constitutional immunity from criminal proceedings.

“The governor is still serving and constitutionally is covered by immunity. Being that as it may, the matter is in the instance sub judice,” the EFCC wrote during a tweet meet organised by Tap Nitiative for Citizens Development, a public accountability think-tank.

Ganduje has been the subject of several videos, which appeared to show him engaging in contract racketeering. At least six of such videos have been published since the first clip was released on October 11.

The governor could be seen receiving wads of US dollars from persons believed to be public works contractors. Ganduje has dismissed the videos as “cloned” and filed a lawsuit against the publisher of the Daily Nigerian online newspaper, Jaafar Jaafar.
