Mary caresses the broken, lifeless body of her son Jesus after His crucifixion.  As Simeon foretold to Mary at the presentation of Jesus in the temple, “A sword will pierce your own soul also.” (Luke 2:35)

Every day I will bless You;
I will praise Your name forever and ever.

Paradoxically, Marina City is neither a marina nor a city.  However, it is one of Chicago’s most recognizable structures, with its “corn cob” like 65-story twin spires reaching into the sky along the Chicago River, and is often seen on album covers, TV show and films related to Chicago.  Completed in 1964, it was the first urban post-World War II high rise residential complex in the United States and is widely credited with beginning the residential building renaissance of American inner cities.  In full disclosure it does have a small marina along the river below it and it does occupy an entire city block of downtown Chicago.  This photo was taken during a Chicago River boat tour.

Mission accomplished!  Met a goal I’ve had for over a year by completing GORUCK Light Class 441 in Indianapolis on Sept 13 and earning my patch. In addition to my first GORUCK event, it was also a 9/11 special event.  56 individuals started and 5 hours later, 1 team of 56 new friends finished together.  What is a GORUCK event?  A challenging mix of PT exercises, navigating a city on foot, team building and creative problem-solving all led by active-duty Special Forces operators—and all while wearing a backpack loaded with bricks.  GORUCK calls it “Good livin’.”  Go to goruck.com and check it out—and sign up for an event! (at Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument)
