Yes I am proud of the city in which I live, Chicago! However, there is no reason but to just take the disappointment and move on to the next opportunity. Yes it would have been great, but that was yesterday and today is a new day. We have so much to be thankful for! We have President Barack Obama, Oprah, and a great history of architecture. So much new architecture is coming, great designers and wonderful Art. We can't have it all. Yes Mayor Daley stepped out of his comfort zone. As one local news anchor said this was very hard for him. He has not really put himself out there like that, this is the first time he really went to a national and international level. He is upset and disappointed, which is understandable. I say well done, keep going. This should mark as a stepping stone to more opportunities in the future. I hope all are enjoying their weekend and if not try giving. Do something totally random, something kind. Have a great day!
