A Chicago Police officer works the scene where two people were shot on the 6900 block of South Honore Street Monday, April 24, 2017. Two people were killed and five others were wounded over a single hour in Chicago on Monday as the number of gunshot victims this year passed the 1,000 mark. The city reached the grim milestone four days later than last year, which saw the worst gun violence in two decades, according to data kept by the Tribune. As of Tuesday morning, at least 1,008 had been shot in Chicago this year. Last year, the city passed the 1,000 mark on April 20. There have been at least 182 homicides this year, just two fewer than this time last year, according to Tribune data. photo

lifted the veil on his retirement Monday at a forum, engaging students with a message calling on them to use empathy and listen to those with whom they disagree. "I have to say that there's a reason why I'm always optimistic when things look like they're sometimes not going the way I want. And that is because of young people like this," Obama said. The discussion with six younger people, including four students, featured Obama taking a historical perspective of his years as an organizer, state senator, U.S. senator and president. "I am the first to acknowledge I did not set the world on fire, nor did I transform these communities in any significant way," he said of his days as a community organizer on the South Side. "But it did change me. This community gave me more than I was able to give in return. This community taught me that ordinary people, when working together, can do extraordinary things," he said. photos

Scroll through for an exclusive tour of the inner workings of the Crown Fountain at Chicago's Millennium Park. The fountain has undergone a $3.7 million renovation and updating as engineers prepare to turn the fountain on for the first time in 2017. The twin, glass-block towers of the fountain have been a public face of Chicago in its most popular park with the fountain's colorful full-mug videos spitting water onto delighted waders below. When the water gets turned on for the season Saturday, visitors will see new, brighter, more energy efficient LED screens depicting the work's signature imagery: faces of Chicagoans from across the city's cultural span who stare, then purse their lips to "spit" a jet of water, then smile. What won't change are the faces themselves "The faces that were part of the piece 13 years ago will be the faces always. It makes it more timeless," said Mark Kelly, commissioner of DCASE, which helped organize the rehab project as part of its 2017 Year of Public Art initiative. Jose M. Osorio/Chicago Tribune

In just a few short months, the Haj Khalaf family has gone from sweating and sleeping together in a single cloth tent at a Turkish refugee camp to a life in America. The family is safe now, and all together. It's a sense of peace the Syrian refugees have cherished even during the most mundane moments since their tearful reunion at O'Hare International Airport in February, when the family's 23-year-old daughter, her husband and now 19-month-old daughter were finally allowed to join her parents and siblings in the U.S. after being stuck in limbo by an executive order banning refugees from the war-torn country. Khaled Haj Khalaf, the family patriarch, has found work as a pastry chef at a popular Ravenswood takeout restaurant, returning to the profession he was forced to abandon when war shut down businesses in Aleppo, where they lived.

"I do not do what I do for money. I come from a place with no money and don't expect I will ever have a lot of it.” Malcolm was 19 when he said this, living in the Austin neighborhood with his mother and younger brother, fresh out of Lincoln Park High School, fresh off winning individual honors at the Louder Than a Bomb youth poetry festival. It has been a very active four years. He has been across the country teaching and performing. He has shared a stage with actor Matt Damon; appeared on PBS for the first televised TED Talk on the topic of "ways to reinvent education"; and hosted events with his friend Chance the Rapper. In all this time he has never stopped thinking about the place in which he lives. "Every day I see people who are actively fighting for a better life...But I don't lose hope because of the young people who, whether they see a funeral or people they know go off to prison, are still able to find hope in themselves and in this city."

Jessica Salgado picks up her daughter Lilah McCoy, 7, from school with her husband Patrice McCoy on April 6, 2017 in Logan Square. Salgado, 24, said her parents brought her to the United States from Mexico when she was 3. She didn't realize she was in the country illegally until she tried to apply for financial aid during her senior year of high school. Unable to afford college tuition, she opted to work and save money for school down the line. "College really was something I wanted to do," Salgado said. "But I knew I couldn't do it if I didn't have the income." Salgado works two jobs while taking classes at Truman College and caring for Lilah. She said she hopes to save enough money to resume applying for permanent residence. "The future feels very uncertain," she said. Photo

Hundreds marched for peace along the streets of Englewood along with Cardinal Blase Cupich, activists and elected officials on Good Friday, April 14, 2017. Cardinal Blase Cupich had gathered the crowd outside St. Benedict the African East Catholic Church for a peace walk through the violence-plagued neighborhood to pray the annual Stations of the Cross. Those walking through Englewood's streets Friday came from all over the city, and many noted the diversity of both race and religion. Cupich offered a message to Chicagoans who may find themselves turning to guns. "I want to say something to all those young people, who are convinced that the only road ahead is violence," he said. "Look at the faces of the people here today ... those who are victims left behind by the deaths of their sons, brothers, cousins, daughters. Have compassion for them."
