While many things about our city and economy can be ultimately depressing, I just watched a short clip on the place I get to spend my days (5 days a week, at least)…in Hamtramck, MI. There's a definite aspect of the news story that is NOT heartwarming…but there is a ray of hope. I like rays of hope. 🙂
This tiny place, on the East side of Detroit, was featured on 20/20 recently, and you can watch the 6 minute video to see where I work! Well, you can't see the school building, but you can see something else that is the unfortunate picturesque view of the environment that my kids live in.
I cried. I cried because of the people featured in the story…they're looking to see transformation happen. I cried because I will only be in Hamtramck, 5 days a week, for a few more months. I've become attached to the kids and families of that little place.
