We have all heard and seen on the news about the recent tragedy of the abuse and death of the two children by their mother's own hands. There was a vigil this evening for the two children that were killed and the two that will have to live with this for the rest of their lives. This is what this guy had to say.......

Rev. Horace Sheffield III, the father of Councilwoman Sheffield, addressed the crowd, saying:

"We're all in the same boat," he said. "We're all going downstream. We got to get together, stay together, fight together, pray together, and move up together. Help us Lord."

Sheffield also called for "strong black leadership" in Detroit: "We can run this city. We need another Coleman Young-like mayor...I'm tired of being treated like we can't run nothing."

In a city filled with blight, one Detroit neighborhood gets help while another waits http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?20017-In-a-city-filled-with-blight-one-Detroit-neighborhood-gets-help-while-another-waits&goto=newpost Wed, 25 Mar 2015 17:02:24 GMT
Quote:

Gray Carter and Sherrod Hicks live a few blocks apart in the Brightmoor neighborhood on Detroit's far west side. They like where they live, but they both see a need for the city to tear down more abandoned homes to make their areas safer and better looking.


Carter is going to be disappointed, at least for a while. He lives in a 1 -story home on Lyndon, near Chapel, in a district that is not targeted for additional demolitions by the city in the foreseeable future.


In contrast, Hicks, who operates an adult foster home for seven clients on the west side of Outer Drive, at Acacia, has watched as heavy machinery has ripped down a handful of abandoned homes in recent weeks. In the six or so blocks west of Hicks, the city has demolished or is planning to knock down about 30 homes.


In Carter's neighborhood, just two blocks east: Zero.

This is really BIG news for the city and the art community. These guys are the best 1-2 punch in the world right now. Having them bless this building with their art is a godsend! Extremely excited about this, kinda the same excitement as Brazil gets when Os Gemeos creates one of their massive murals.....
