Keith Whitted Jr. of Chicago lost his father to gun violence when he was five. His grandmother encouraged him to channel his anger and hurt into writings, which his family turned into a book called Kevin's Heart. "I wanted to write the book so I can teach people not to kill nobody no more,” said Whitted. (photo: courtesy of NBC)
