According to legendary author Carl Sandburg…

 

Hog Butcher for the World,

Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,

Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;

Stormy, husky, brawling,

City of the Big Shoulders

 

As written by Fred Fisher and sung by Fred Astaire in the motion picture The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle

 

                        That toddlin’ town

 

            As written by Sammy Cahn and sung by Frank Sinatra in the motion picture Robin and the Seven Hoods

 

The Wrigley Building,

The Union Stockyards,

It’s my kind of town

 

That was then… things change

 

            A Harvard grad that could’ve had the any job in the legal field that he desired came to my hometown to dedicate his career to making a change for the betterment of a neighborhood in need. He called this place his home. He made it his home. It wasn’t that long ago.
