Happy Deep Dish Pizza Day!!!
This was taken at Chicagoland's famous Lou Malnati's. I'm salivating just thinking about what that pizza tastes like.
Chicago is my favorite city in the world. I love the museums, the parks and the architecture. The architecture is amazing, mainly a result of the fire begun by Mrs. O'Leary's cow. After the smoke cleared and the city began to rebuild, the most famous architects in the world came to participate in building Chicago...The Second City. (Chicago was never called The Second City because it was second to anyone, today's Chicago simply is, the second Chicago.)
One day I was walking in the downtown area, not too far from the Sears Tower. I was further east and a tad north of the Tower. (I will never, ever, as long as I live, refer to it as the W****s Tower.) As usual, I was enjoying the architecture of the area when all of a sudden, I saw a building that had carvings of swastikas all around it at the top of the first floor. I sort of stopped in my tracks and stared...am I really seeing this? How could I have lived here for decades and never known about the swastika building?
This is what I saw, only it was around the entire periphery of the building:
I later learned that the building pre-dated the swastika as WE know it. It had other meanings before Hitler made it a symbol of the worst form of evil possible out of human beings.
I need to do something right now, but I'm not done with this post, I'll be back.
