Let us Now Heal the Great City of Detroit

The restoring of Detroit will be a template for the restoration of America. But, before we can restore, we must first acknowledge our pain and begin healing our wounds.

A Measure of Good Leadership

Leaders come in many shapes, forms and sizes, and there are outstanding, mediocre and poor examples of leadership everywhere. In fact, civilization could not have come this far without good leaders.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – A Leader’s Leader

“We Must Not Be Afraid to Really Look at Ourselves and Stop Stoning the Messengers Who Speak the Truth to Us About Us.”
