Three days, 64 people shot, six of them dead: Memorial Day on the streets, and the violence that has engulfed families and neighborhoods.

Antione Day spent nearly 10 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. After being exonerated in 2002, he dedicated his life to helping the formally incarcerated turn their lives around. Day acts as mentor and stand-in father for 21-year-old Shaquille Thompson, who is trying to distance himself from the gang violence of the South Side Chicago neighborhood where he grew up.
The Syrian government is targeting civilians and committing brutal war crimes. Left unchecked, the spread and continuation of these crimes could amount to genocide. In a country of 22 million, half are displaced. More than 400,000 are dead. In the city of Aleppo alone, 120,000 children are at risk. Video done for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
