Chicago Tribune  Moments in Chicago & the Midwest from the Tribune's photo department

Jeff Vis Jr., 43, of Des Plaines, sprinkles a beer on his father's grave at Lincoln National Cemetery on May 28, 2017, in Elwood. Jeff's father, Jeff Vis Sr., was in the Navy and served during the Vietnam War. As Jeff Jr. rejoined his family, his son, Fred, asked, "Did grandpa finish his beer?" Jeff Jr. chuckled and answered, "Yes." Alyssa Pointer/Chicago Tribune @alyssapointerphoto #memorialdayweekend #lincolnnationalcemetery #abeerfordad

Scroll for photos // The report at the weekly check-in of the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago was promising. Only one shooting in the institute's targeted area over the last seven days. The approximately 30 staff members sitting in a big circle nodded and smiled at the good news. Teny Gross, who heads the institute in the West Side's Austin neighborhood, tapped a wooden table top. Knock on wood. The institute, the latest effort to reduce runaway gang violence, opened quietly in a large storefront space on Chicago Avenue a year ago with a $2.5 million annual budget — a combination of city and private money. Like other anti-violence programs before it, former gang members mediate conflicts on the street. But what distinguishes the institute is its approach — it relies on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s principles of nonviolence. Photos by John J. Kim/Chicago Tribune. LINK in profile to full story by Annie Sweeney. #violence #nonviolence #violenceprevention #Austin #Chicago

Erin Einbender photographs Roxie on Friday, May 26, 2017 at One Tail at a Time dog rescue on Chicago’s North Side. The first photo is by the Tribune’s Chris Walker @walkerpix Swipe left to see Erin’s photos. @_mindbender @conesoffame Einbender photographs dogs in decorative “cones of shame” to draw attention to animals looking for homes. She spent $200 at a craft store buying colorful feathers, fuzzy pompom balls and other supplies for her final photography project as a student at the School of the Art Institute. Her idea was to turn those “cones of shame” — the clunky plastic cones dogs sometimes have to wear around their necks to keep them from licking or biting themselves after surgeries — into decorative “cones of fame.” “All the dogs at One Tail at a Time, before they get adopted, get spayed or neutered and they looked so sad in their cones,” she said. “I wanted to empower the dogs and help them get adopted because I know that good photographs help them get noticed,” she said. “I also wanted to show the importance of spaying and neutering pets because people associate the cones with shame and it's actually really important to spay and neuter your pet.” @onetailatatime

"She has changed my life," veteran Don Harvill said of Sierra, who was given to him by K9s for Veterans and has been trained to help with the Wilsonville, Ill., vet's specific needs. Sierra senses his anxiety and stands protectively nearby, as Harvill talks about his deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Harvill leaned on alcohol and medication to cope with his PTSD, hoping that he could forget what happened in Iraq 12 years ago. Harvill turned to a therapist for help, but he still couldn't move forward. This spring, more than a decade after he went to Iraq, his nightmares finally stopped. Harvill, 47, says a three-week intensive program at the Center for Veterans and Their Families at Rush University Medical Center helped ease years of persistent pain.

The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye, launched his career with brooding, compelling #rnb noir mixtapes that often explored depraved relationships with an emotional detachment, buoyed by falsettos and wrapped in a narcotic-vibed musical haze. As he's progressed the dark themes have remained, but he's also become a bona fide pop star. And at his hit-filled performance at Allstate Arena on Tuesday, he had the charisma and moves to live up to the namesake of his recent effort. Tesfaye didn't address the tragedy from the night before after the deadly attack at the #ArianaGrande concert in #Manchester, England, nor the extra safety measures surrounding his show while onstage. Fans were instead treated to a joyfully delivered performance, and given how somber the circumstances were leading into the concert, it seemed to be exactly what was needed.

Brittany Williamson, center, of Detroit, listens to speakers outside the McDonald's at Clark and Ontario Streets in Chicago on May 23, 2017, during a march and rally calling for a $15 minimum wage. About 1,500 people demonstrated downtown Tuesday afternoon, moving through the Near West Side and the Loop during the rainy rush-hour. "We want respect, put 15 on the check!'' they chanted. Fight for $15 began in 2012 when two hundred fast-food workers walked off the job to demand $15 per hour and union rights in New York City.
