Forever and ever, Mayor Daley. This is a legacy piece, as much as it is a vehicle of social commentary. Equally the message tributes Richard M. Daley's political brilliance as well it acknowledges his personal sacrifice to the people and city of Chicago. For thirty-eight years he dedicated his life to political office, twenty-two of them were invested as Chicago's Mayor. Son of Mayor Richard J. Daley, the younger was a man that did not run on a four year plan
Positions of public and political service are roles in our society of great honor, yet of even greater duty. Decisions made by any of us impact our lives through the resulting effects. Often one will lead to another like a row of tumbling dominoes interchanging rolls of cause and effect. The effects caused by public figures... specifically political figures have the percussive factor of forever. Far past any term of office their impact exponentially grows. While Chicago has surpassed Daniel Burnham's 100 year plan his impact is felt every moment by every Chicagoan. Mayor Daley's dedication and work for Chicago will be seen, felt, and experienced through out our infrastructure and our lives. Impact of this immensity reverberates forever. This piece celebrates all that they have given.
