It’s Time

The mayor has resigned. He has owned up to the things he did wrong. He will have to pay a considerable amount of money back to the city. On earth, as it is in heaven, thine will be done, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

So be it is all we can say now. It’s time to move on, time to repair the damage, reinstall the hope and look to the future. There is plenty of soap in the bathroom, so go wash your hands and get busy. This will not be an easy task but must be accomplished at the speed of light. We waited too long to fix it, so the only choice we are left with is full speed ahead. This disaster is like a hurricane. Citizens of Detroit have been misunderstood, under served and forgotten. It’s time to get everything running again. Yes, this is a sad chapter in the book of life in Detroit. Yet, we’ve been down before and rose up and we can do it again.

Unfortunately, I was not able to see what happen but, I saw the news. Hopefully, the news media reported it right and left it up to me to decide if things were handled with tact. So long protestors, so long advocates, so long headaches. We must all realize hanging on to what can’t be undone would be foolish. Let’s drop the, who said, she said crap. Let’s accept we all have a responsibility now to shine a new light on the city. Let’s rebuild the ladder to the sky. Let’s show the country and the world that it is over. We have moved on to bigger and better things to do.

How do we start? We start with each other. No more discussion of the rights and wrongs of the mess. Let’s talk who helps lay the new foundation, who constructs the buildings, who install the electrics, who installs the plumbing, etc. You see, Detroit is like building a new house. You start from the ground up, making sure that each step is taken with precision so you only have to do it once. No house of straw, mud, or cards. One built solid. Solid like that old song we all loved, Solid Like a Rock.

It’s a new day in a new season. If nothing else, to thy own self and the rest of the world, be true
