Yes, Virginia, Bad Things Happen Everywhere
How I wish I had written this blog post. Kudos (again) to Detroit Moxie, who writes about her frustration with people who say things like: Of course your car was broken into; you were in Detroit.
It's title: Bad Things Happen Everywhere. Even its title is great. Says so much about what I've also experienced in and around the city.
Yes, my car got broken into while we were in Detroit. People, cars get broken into everywhere! My friend Beverly Cornell recently had her laptop stolen from her car, ON HER DRIVEWAY, in Madison Heights. Miraculously, she got it back due to an angel. Seriously, if it happened today we'd be calling it a Christmas miracle.
Crime happens everywhere and more so in big cities.
Am I going to stop going into Detroit? Hell no! I'm going to keep on embracing this city, just like I have been doing. Things happen. We move on. We get back up.
