Chicago … a city of courage, a city of strength, a city of honor. A city built from the ground up by people from around the world. One that was even built again after the great fire of 1871. One that rose from the ashes of turmoil to become a City of Opportunity, of Hope, of Leadership; a prideful city. Chicagoans have been through it all. They know what it takes to maintain, to carry on, to prosper; they understand it takes teamwork. They value morals, honor rich traditions and walk their city with a ton of pride.
A strong city, a port city, a “train capitol of the world” city, a political city, a home of the skyscraper and a city of hard workers. A city of innovation and forward-thinking philosophies. A city founded by immigrants that came to America to seek a greater good and achieve their biggest dreams. A city made up of neighborhoods founded by rich and deep cultures with principles and traditions. A city that’s gone through its fair share of adversity, trials and tribulations. Make no doubt about it, Chicago is a wise and understanding metropolis that upholds its values and beliefs every single day.
