“survival is nothing more than recovery.”

50 years ago this week
we were in the midst of a detroit riot
we have come such a long way
still have a way to go
but here we go.
“since its founding, detroit has been a place of perpetual flames. numerous times the city has suffered riots and each time the city has burned to the ground. the city’s flag acknowledges as much.
speramus meliora; resurget cineribus:
we hope for better things;
it shall rise from the ashes.”
detroit free press – 1967
