Return to Chicago
“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.”
Here’s me flying right before the pandemic struck. And thus I got to see the city of my origin story once more before travel bans, masks, and great fear, anxiety, civil unrest, political upheaval sets in…
Aboard flight AA4179 from ORD to RDU. Approx time 2 hrs and spare change. It’s weird that I feel homesick for NC now. It’s only been my new home for several months only.
Now the Chi felt as it always has in my mind, my heart, soul and body: cold, indifferent, apathetic and an empty soulless husk. The kind of beast whose vigor and aliveness was devoured from within by blood starved parasites. Those parasites are the corrupt installed by transients and liberals really. If you want a first class lesson in what liberals do when they ‘take over’ Chicago is a shining example: broke as sin and trying to bleed the populace of any resources it can obtain. If they could they would charge an air tax and a tax for paying taxes. The decision was smart, obvious and long overdue. I’m not the first not the last to think so either really. Mass exodus is on the rise.
