The NATO Summit is being held here, so people from all over the world will be here for the summit and for protests and demonstrations all around our town. It's a wonderful opportunity for Chicago, to be on the world stage, but also a scary prospect...there are those that wish to disrupt, destroy, make trouble, make a statement. Yesterday morning I heard a fighter jet quickly cross the airspace over our little suburb, and it made me think of the possibility of trouble. Our son works security in the loop, and has had special training for this weeks events. I pray he doesn't need to use it. My hope is for a peaceful summit, peaceful demonstrations and a PEACEFUL WORLD. I proudly welcome the world to my home, Chicago!
Have a great weekend my friends.
