Editor's note: The content of a submitted letter does not necessarily represent the views of The South End, its editorial board or employees. 

My entire childhood has been filled with stories of the once great Detroit, comparable to any New York or Chicago day with crowds bustling through and stores flourishing. These images have continuously been contrasted with my experience in Detroit, which has consisted of boarded up windows and keeping your head down as you walk from various stadiums to your car. Now that I am old enough to learn the history of this great city, I become more and more excited each year as this “comeback city” returns to its great stature. Time heals all wounds, but I also think that Gov. Snyder and Republicans in Lansing have finally given Detroit the freedom to resurrect from the dirt and become the city I have always heard of. I am excited for the future of Detroit and thankful for the second chance us Michiganders have received to prove the stereotypes of Detroit wrong.

Erin Carmona, Lansing MI
