It’s a time of mourning for Sears, the iconic department store that announced its bankruptcy filing Monday morning. And though Sears didn’t have its origins or footprint in Detroit (we had Kresge’s, Crowley’s, and, of course, Hudson’s), the chain from which so much of modern Americana was purchased has links all over this city.
Perhaps it takes a special level of bold humility, or humble boldness, for a person to raise a child in Detroit today. On the one hand, parents are called to guide a vulnerable child against all odds into a life of love and hope. How bold! On the other hand, much of a child’s experiences fall outside of the power and control of a parent. We can be made humble quickly. Yet somehow, parents all over Detroit do this impossibly bold and humble task every day, keeping kids happy, safe and loved when odds are often against them.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
