Showing Love To Brightmoor
Talking about murder to close out a Friday, frankly, left a bad taste in my mouth. So from here on out, I'll make it a point not to close out a week on a down note again. (And I'm sure now you'll check me if I do.)
To atone, I wanted to post a link to a little something positive about the spirit of the city before I signed off for the week. Found a great story about Brightmoor, a resilient westside community where a lot of my in-laws grew up...It's seen its challenges, but the residents are facing them head on -- and seeing some successes. If you want to understand Detroit, you gotta know places like "Brightmo'," as my brothers-in-law call it. Props to Model D for the wealth of reporting.
