"My Worries Have Gone Up For My Dad"
As part of Assignment Detroit, TIME.com is working with 11 high school students from the Detroit area. They come from all walks of life, from suburban prep schools to city schools both strong and weak. The project will illustrate the Detroit region from their point of view—what it's like to live there now, and whether the area has a place in their future or not. Today's video post is from Dan Dou, a junior at Grosse Pointe South High School. In it, Dan asks student Jeff Leineke a few simple questions about what life has been like for him and his family during the recession, and about what it would take for him to stay in Detroit in the future. It's a good insight into what teens in one of the nation's toughest economies are thinking as they look forward.
