|Detroit's River Walk|
|The Spirit of Detroit|
Mr. Gallagher is not a cheerleader. He is honest in recognizing Detroit's marred history and current flaws. He does not forget that Detroit had to declare bankruptcy in 2013 or 2014. And he does not proclaim triumph, not yet. Detroit still has work to do. But, Detroit is working toward a better city.

Anyone can tell you: Destruction can be done in a moment; improvement and growth take a lot of time and are hard work. And Detroit is working at it. Mr. Gallagher details some of the success stories that are leading to a renewed (some would say "resurrected") Detroit. I hope the work continues, and I hope people outside Detroit will recognize that Detroit is no longer a joke.
