Detroit is my home and despite all of our issues I still Love this city, my city. I see so much potential, so many good people and so many good things that are happening around us.
For me it’s really about making something happen everyday and looking for new opportunities to learn and grow. To become more of who GOD wants me to be. A quote I like to remember from Motivational Speaker Les Brown is “Keep failing your way to success”. If you do nothing, success can’t be, if you do nothing you don’t make mistakes and then you don’t learn and you don’t grow. Detroit is growing…I have so much hope for Detroit…I believe in Detroit. Now is the time….. there is an urgency in this moment…. in this city to make things right . Our destiny, whether you are black or white are all tied together. We must continue working together for the sake of our children and our future.
